LOS ANGELES — Playboy Enterprises and Circle Exhibits have announced the opening of “Freedom Is Key: A Playboy Exhibition,” running now through May 26 at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles.
The pop-up exhibit is currated for a PG audience and features rare or previously unseen archival material to highlight Playboy’s social and political impact over the past 65 years.
“Our team of archivists have worked closely with Circle Exhibits to create a powerful and informative look into Playboy’s first 65 years,” said Jared Dougherty, president of licensing and joint ventures at Playboy Enterprises. “We think audiences are not only going to have fun, but we hope they’ll walk away with a new appreciation for the role Playboy has played in so many important cultural moments over the years.”
The interactive exhibition invites attendees to capture their visit by snapping a pic on the Playboy Club stage, sitting behind an editor’s desk and even posing for the famous magazine cover itself.
“We knew Playboy, with its place in the cultural zeitgeist as a catalyst for social change and as such an important cultural channel for the world, would be perfect for an experiential exhibit,” said Joel Weinshanker, president of Circle Exhibits. “But, it wasn't until we began working with the company and its archivists, did we see how powerful a story we could bring to life for fans.”
The “Freedom is Key” exhibition is open during mall hours. Tickets are limited and on sale now for $15 per person.
