   New York is honoring actor Michael Keaton for his contributions to the art of film. The George Eastman Museum in Rochester will present the Batman, Beetlejuice, Birdman, and Spotlight actor with an award this evening. The star is on a roll, having appeared in the last two Oscar winners for Best Picture. The museum says Keaton is being recognized for his versatility over more than 40 years in television and film. The ceremony will feature a video compilation of his work.

   The George Eastman Museum is the world’s oldest photography museum and one of the oldest film archives. The George Eastman Award was established in 1955, and is named for the photography innovator who founded Rochester-based Eastman Kodak.

   Previous winners of the award have included Charlie Chaplin, Martin Scorsese, Meryl Streep, and Michael Douglas. Congratulations to the talented actor.

This is the location I visited in March for an oral presentation and book-signing event during the 2016 ReelAbilities Film Festival. This makes 91st repository that will carry my initial literary work, and 111th library, overall.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
