Before the days of Elvis wannabes and before the plethora of Elvis look alikes, there was Elvis. Young and feisty, talented and sexy, Elvis Presley revolutionized pop music in the early sixties. The exhibition Elvis: Grace and Grit looks at the early years of superstardom through his many CBS appearances. Shot by various CBS Television photographers, the exhibit contains candid and on air photographs that document Elvis before the Las Vegas years – during the meteoric rise of this star.
