Friday, June 7, 2002 . The CATALINA ISLANDER Page 3 I all by PATTI LANGE Fans of Island and Hollywood history will enjoy the Catalina Island Museum's contribution to the Buffalo in Paradise public art display. "Movie Buff" greets visitors at the museum and showcases, on its hide in big stars, the names of just some of the Hollywood slurs and films who have worked on the Island. Museum Director Stacey Otte said that museum staff and volun- teers created "Movie Buff." They knew that they wanted their buffa- lo to celebrate Island history and that led them to focus on one aspect of Island history. The obvi- ous topic seemed to be the Holly- wood connection, as it would appeal to all types of people and draw visitors to the museum. The idea of creating a visual presentation of movies filmed here brought up talk of the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the result is the recognition of many stars all over the lifesized ceramic canvas. Otte said that they chose stars that span the decades to appeal to all age groups. Names include Charlie Chaplin and Mel Gibson while movies recognized include "Old Ironsides" and "Apollo 13" The buffalo stands, appropri- museum Museum staff painted this buffalo that recognizes Hollywood's history on the Island. photo by PATTI LANGE ately enough, on a red carpet sur- Tovar, Kathleen Gosselin, Rock rounded by props at its base.
