It was particularly fitting that the Columbus cultural community joined together to celebrate Marvin Hamlisch’s extraordinary career since Marvin married a hometown girl – renowned journalist Terre Blair.
The wonderful photographs documenting the celebrations in the exhibition and book were taken by noted photographer Len Prince, a dear friend of the Hamlisches. His work captures the power Marvin’s music had on the entire spectrum of the musical theater world—from energetic young dancers to icons of stage and screen and full symphony orchestras. His music and lyrics have touched millions of people and remain inextricable linked to memories from our lives.
We are grateful to Seth Harris and his wife Laurie Gregory who have given this body of work by Len Prince to the Columbus Museum of Art. Through their generosity we are able to share these wonderful photographs with those who loved Marvin Hamlisch.
