Lee would be thrilled to know there are ways to incorporate his fabulous legacy into every holiday.

Check out: Do It Yourself Liberace Pumpkins! 

Now excuse me while I slip into something more fabulous and warm up my glue gun!

If the Liberace Museum ever opens I think it would be awesome to have decorating contests themed after Lee’s decorating prowess!

 

Inspired yet again by the lovely Ava Gardner Museum  which is thriving while Liberace’s has closed, I would love to know how much interest there would be for an annual Liberace Festival just like the museum for Ava has enjoyed.

Check out the details for the Ava Gardner festival.

Do you think that Las Vegas could pull off a Liberace festival to benefit his scholarship foundation? Would you purchase tickets 6 months in advance?

Many of those who once worked with Lee are now gone. Yet we still have remarkable people still around who can honestly and authentically answer questions about the man, the music, the costumes, and the legacy in a panel discussion just as other classic celebrities are now honored.

I salute the Ava Gardner museum on their great work and I believe one day we will have the same vibrant energy at work for Lee.

Bank of America offers a program Museums on Us which pays admission for its customers to participating museums on the first full weekend of every month. This program offers free admission to many different types of museums from fine art galleries to the Nascar Hall of Fame Museum in North Carolina.

The Liberace Museum as a charitable organization that supports a scholarship would most likely qualify. Why not open the museum for those weekends when you know there will be tons of paid admissions from customers for whom it is free to them, but paid to the foundation?

It will take a whole lot of creativity, imagination, and tenacity to keep Mr. Showmanship’s legacy alive.  Is the foundation up to it?
