Everybody knows about the legends of the entertainment world who got their start in Nebraska . . . Johnny Carson, Marlon Brando, Fred Astaire, Darryl Zanuck... In an industry where it's all about "who you know ," it's not a bad idea to stick together. The Nebraska Coast Connection is an alliance of people who share a common spirit and a link to the Midwest.
The centerpiece of the group since 1995 has been the regular monthly gatherings called The Hollywood Salon. Not to be confused with the place you get your hair done, the idea of an artist's salon has a rich history. From ancient times, writers and painters and poets and politicians have met in salon settings to share their art and discuss events of the day. In Athens, Paris and New York, Salons were important ways for ideas to germinate, artists to be discovered and valuable relationships to blossom. The Hollywood Salon continues that tradition with a slant toward careers in showbiz.
Join us at the next Hollywood Salon, always the Second Monday of the Month, 7:30 PM, at the Culver Hotel, Culver City, California.
