Burlesque is Immortalized in Las Vegas
The Burlesque Hall of Fame celebrated its 20th anniversary last week by unveiling its grand opening of a new exhibit: Sequins in the Sand: Celebrating 20 years of Miss Exotic World. The new exhibit displays memorabilia collected by the late burlesque performer Jennie Lee.
Former burlesque performer and museum curator Dixie e Evans was joined by Mayor Oscar Goodman, Holly Madison of Peepshow, and 2009 Miss Exotic World, Kalani Kokonuts, who is deemed by many as the “Queen of Burlesque”, for the celebration.
Visiting the Burlesque Hall of Fame you will find thousands of artifacts commemorating this exotic art form. Elaborate costumes, playbills, diaries, and photographs are just a few of the items on display, also you can par take in a sexy history lesson as you learn the origins of burlesque.
Burlesque is a truly amazing form of art. I love burlesque for its sexy, sensual, and classy presentation. So please check out this truly unique museum and share in my love of burlesque.
The Burlesque Hall of Fame is located downtown at 520 E. Fremont Street, Suite 120 and is open daily.
