The movie poster, in all of its sizes and forms, has been the backbone of the cinema industry. Movies and their posters have grown side-by-side since the late 1800s, and as the films evolved, so did the means of promotion. This never-before-exhibited private collection from the Miller Archives will showcase rare film posters from the Golden Age of cinema.

A fascinating look at American politics, and the men who gave the presidential incumbents a run for their money, sometimes returning to win a later election. The show highlights military heroes who became candidates, incumbents who lost, and the fluctuating costs of running a campaign. This exhibit explores the often neglected stories behind these hopeful candidates through original cartoons, sheet music, and memorabilia. It gives viewers a chance to speculate to what extent history might have been rewritten had another candidate occupied the oval office.



Leo Fender: Life and Legacy

2016 is the 10 year anniversary of the Leo Fender Gallery. For the past decade, the Fullerton Museum Center's Leo Fender Gallery has provided a hometown venue for celebrating the life and works of the city's most famous and influential son. Clarence Leo Fender was an unassuming man who couldn't play the guitar, yet his creations inspired generations of musicians and changed the  sound of popular music.  For the anniversary, we celebrate the man by taking a fresh look at his life, work and lifetime of inventiveness.
