The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will open its permanent installation on Hollywood's Jewish founders on May 19, 2024, reports the Forward. That's a delay from the initially projected 2023 debut.
At the museum's 2021 opening, some felt the generally DEI-aware exhibitions left the early Jewish moguls on the cutting room floor. Among the more vocal critics were Haim and Cheryl Saban, who donated $50 million to the museum.
The new exhibit, "Hollywoodland: Jewish Founders and the Making of a Movie Capital" is to be the museum's only permanent installation. Dara Jaffe is curating.
