Rick Rikert, Tour
guide at the Liberace Museum- 'Good afternoon everyone and welcome to the
Liberace Museum and Center for the Performing and Creative Arts. My name is Rick
Rikert and I'm here to tell you a little bit about the museum.'
Long before his death Liberace was making plans that would enable people to enjoy his legacy for many years to come.
Liberace, from the video 'The World of Liberace'- 'I would like to think that my music would be remembered, and also some of the beautiful things that I've collected in my homes. In fact' I have formed a trust so that my personal belongings and my homes will be shared by the world after I'm gone as a sort of a museum.'
Sandra Harris, Executive Director, Liberace Foundation and Museum- 'It's far more than that.'
Sandra Harris is the Executive Director of the non-profit Liberace Foundation and Museum.
Sandra Harris, Executive Director, Liberace Foundation and Museum- 'That part is fun, but I think what people are surprised about when they come here is that we have a very highly trained professional staff that is teaching a lot. Not just who Liberace was and his story, which is very interesting and very important, but you're learning a lot of history. Whether it's Las Vegas, or about pianos or, cars, or costume design. And it's going to a broader cause, which is his legacy which was to help other people have a career in the arts.'
You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
