In the days before CGI ruled the world, a small but dedicated group of people had to physically create all of the models and special effects for films and television. Martin Bower was one of those people...If you've ever watched Alien, Flash Gordon, or Outland, or seen TV shows such as Doctor Who, Blake's 7, or Space: 1999, (amongst many others) then you'll be very familiar with Martin's work, as he was part of the teams that made these possible.

This is a metate, made from a single piece of extremely brittle volcanic stone. Ancient Mesoamericans used functional metates to grind corn; however ritual objects like this one, placed in burial sites, would have served the deceased in the afterlife. Learn more during a special gallery tour featuring work by Latin American artists and sitters on Saturday at Latinx Heritage Festival. More info at the link in our bio!

🐱Cats were considered sacred in ancient Egypt – they were often mummified and buried in special cemeteries. According to the Greek historian Herodotus, if a cat died in an Egyptian household all the inhabitants would shave their eyebrows!

This life-size sculpture was made over 2,300 years ago and dedicated to the goddess Bastet, who was often represented as a cat. It’s lavishly adorned with gold ear and nose rings and a silver collar.

Did you know a group of cats used to live at the Museum? From the 1970s to the 1990s, between 4 and 7 cats were kept to deter mice – discover the curious story of Pippin, Poppet and the ‘Cat Man’ in this blog: http://ow.ly/jAg830pi8l1

Our online shop has a wonderful range of products inspired by cats – browse the collection here: http://ow.ly/TxaM30pi86H #InternationalCatDay

Happy birthday to costume designer Marilyn Vance! Marilyn’s first feature film was cult favorite FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH (1982). She became a frequent collaborator of director John Hughes, designing seven films for him, including THE BREAKFAST CLUB (1985), PRETTY IN PINK (1986), and FERRIS BUELLER’S DAY OFF (1986). Hughes's films defined 1980s teen culture, and Marilyn’s costumes both reflected and influenced what teenagers wore at the time. These films—and her costumes—have come to form the collective memory of that time.

While Marilyn is perhaps best known for expertly capturing the iconic teenage styles of the 1980s, she was nominated for an Academy Award for her 1930s period designs on THE UNTOUCHABLES (1987). On top of costume designing for film and television, Marilyn is a producer as well as a mentor for aspiring costume designers through the Academy’s nonprofit, Spark @ the Academy. For her excellent and robust body of work, Marilyn received a Career Achievement Award from the Costume Designers Guild in 2009.
