In our continued effort to share the remarkable life and lasting legacy of Ava Gardner with fans the world over, the Museum is excited to announce the launch of a new virtual program January 16th at 1pm ET. Our new virtual series, called Ava Chats, will feature conversations between the Museum’s staff, curatorial team, board of directors, and special guests. Topics for our series will span Ava’s entire life, from her humble beginnings in rural North Carolina to her relaxed final years in London. We will also showcase the Museum’s vast repository of Ava’s personal and professional artifacts which include photographs, jewelry, costumes, memorabilia, papers, ephemera, and much more.
