A photography display titled “ELVIS: Grace and Grit” will be featured in the University of Tennessee at Martin Paul Meek Library Museum from Monday through May 31.
An opening reception is scheduled for Thursday from noon-12:30 p.m.
“ELVIS: Grace and Grit” is the latest traveling exhibition from the CBS Television Photo Archive. Shot by various CBS photographers, the exhibition contains 35 candid and on-air photographs documenting Elvis before the Las Vegas years — during the meteoric rise of this star, according to Victoria Ann Rehberg, exhibition marketing manager.
The exhibition was curated by National Exhibitions & Archives, LLC, of Glens Falls, N.Y., and the CBS Photo Archive.
The images, taken by CBS photographers, represent a sampling of over 30 million memorable images contained in the CBS Entertainment Archives, dating back to when CBS first began broadcasting as a radio network in 1928.
