This year is the 60th anniversary of the publication of Ian Fleming's first James Bond novel, Casino Royale. ECE alum and Fleming aficionado Michael L. VanBlaricum (BSEE '72, MSEE '74, PhD '76) has curated a multi-venue exhibition to commemorate the event.
"The James Bond Theme: Music to Live, Die, and Love Another Day" is the Sousa Archives and Center for American Music's exhibit. It explores the historical and musical roots of two quintessential melodies associated with all of the Bond movies between 1964 and 2012, and illustrates through music, photographs, graphic art, and oral history interviews their lasting impact of the Bond movie legacy.
This exhibit will run April 12, 2013 through March 14, 2014.
