This exhibit at the Ava Gardner Museum opened in 2020 and remains on view. The exhibit includes artifacts given to Ava Gardner’s great-niece by the star as well as stories and recollections of their relationship. I curated this temporary exhibit featuring items on loan to the museum from Ava Gardner’s great-niece, Ava Thompson. Prepared items for exhibition, wrote copy, and installed exhibit. Graphic design by Donna Bailey-Taylor, museum board member.
