We knew him Chairman Of The Board. We knew him as Old Blue Eyes. Or just plain Frank Sinatra. When he passed away in 1998, the world lost an icon.
This year he would have been 100. The New York Public Library celebrates his life, career and music with an exhibit as Lincoln Center titled Sinatra: An American Icon.
Frank Sinatra was not just a singer. Nor was he not just an actor. He was one of the few individuals in show business who was able to succeed in both arenas and keep both sides of his career going at the same time. But the exhibit is not just about the performer. It is about the man, the father, the husband and the icon who may no longer be physically with us, but his work and his spirit live on.
I absolutely recommend this exhibition.
Sinatra: An American Icon will be at the New York Public Library For Performing Arts Until September 4th.
