Last days of the exhibition "'BRAVO' Starcuts. A Collection of Legends"
The last week of the current Opelvillen exhibition "'BRAVO' Starcuts. A collection of legends" is dawning. Already today positive balance can be drawn: The response of the guests was enormous, all events were fully booked, the number of guided tours had to be increased and the opening hours extended. The great popularity of the show is also reflected in the media coverage, which is incessant and Germany-wide in all media.
The lively stream of visitors from near and far is equally enthusiastic about the Opelvillen: "Memories are awakened there," "Youth returns," "This exhibition is a rejuvenation cure," and "Everyone here somehow has a smile on their face," are some of the many cheerful entries in the visitors' book. On Sunday, October 1, the much-acclaimed exhibition ends and the Opelvillen Rüsselsheim Art and Culture Foundation invites visitors to guided tours at 3 and 4 p.m. (without pre-registration) and to the finissage event at 5 p.m. (with pre-registration, see below).
Film and television star Uschi Glas was among the guests at the beginning of September. The actress adorned the cover of BRAVO almost twenty times and got a BRAVO star cut twice: 1969 next to Roy Black and 1970 sitting alone in white shoes. Known for her portrayal of Apanatschi in the 1966 western "Winnetou und das Halbblut Apanatschi" (Winnetou and the Half-Breed Apanatschi), in which she starred alongside Lex Barker, Pierre Brice and Götz George, Uschi Glas took on the leading role of Barbara in the film comedy "Zur Sache, Schätzchen" (To the Point, Sweetheart) by May Spils two years later and became a cult figure as the "Sweetheart of the Nation." In conversation with curator Dr. Beate Kemfert, she reviewed past and present film roles.
Also a guest in July was star photographer Wolfgang "Bubi" Heilemann, who photographed all the rock and pop icons of the 60s, 70s and 80s. Mick Jagger, The Beatles, the Bee Gees, Udo Lindenberg, ABBA, Suzi Quatro and many more stood in front of his camera. For BRAVO alone, Heilemann was the first permanent freelance photographer to shoot over 250 cover photos and star cuts. His proximity to the stars distinguished him thereby again and again, as he revealed in many entertaining anecdotes in the discussion with Dr. Beate Kemfert.
Besides these events also with multimedia guidance by the show rock star legends and long forgotten starlets from film, television and music were again awaked. Especially popular was the own introduced evening tour with cocktail and music, where each month was themed to a different decade. Also the extended guidance offers in September were completely booked out within shortest time.
Till Sunday, 1 October still opportunity exists to visit the BRAVO exhibition in Rüsselsheim. Due to the enormous demand, the number of public Sunday tours will be increased (no registration required). Overview tours can be accessed in the Opelvillen online calendar at: www.opelvillen.de.
For the finissage, Dr. Beate Kemfert invites visitors to a final walk through the exhibition on Sunday, October 1 at 5 p.m., featuring a ten-minute BRAVO comedy special with stand-up comedian Peter Kunz. There are still a few tickets available at email@example.com or 06142 835 907 (business hours Mon.-Fri., 10-12). The ticket costs 12,00 EUR per person.
