Regional Victoria is getting a dose of the king, with an Elvis Presley exhibition set to rock ‘n’ roll its way into Bendigo from next March.
The exhibition is called ‘Elvis: Direct from Graceland’, and will venture all the way from Memphis, Tennessee before arriving in Bendigo Art Gallery.
The exhibition will include 300 artefacts owned by Elvis himself, with some highlights including military uniforms, a 1976 Red Bicentennial Custom Harley Davidson and a selection of his iconic jumpsuits.
Even personal items from his early years such as baby clothes for his daughter, his first ever completed job application and first-grade crayon box will be on show.
This is the only the start of what’s on show with his wedding tuxedo and wardrobe from his 68 Comeback Special also on display.
Bendigo Art Gallery director Jessica Bridgfoot says the exhibition is part of a larger international series that gives a peek into the lives of world icons.
“We are so excited to be able to bring this iconic collection to Australia – the latest in an international series of exhibitions that pay homage to style icons including Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Balenciaga and Mary Quant.”
