16 June-27 September 2009. This exhibition documents the origin of the fictitious but popular character of Tarzan. Created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Tarzan has been the subject of countless cinematic releases, from 'Saturnin Farandoul' in 1914 to Hugh Hudson's 'Greystoke' in 1983. Much loved by adults and children the Tarzan brand name has lent itself to everything from board games to action figures while the legend continues to capture the world's imagination. Recently the heroic concept of a man defending Mother Nature has even greater appeal than it had before.
Tues, Wed & Sun 11.00-19.00, Thurs, Fri & Sat 11.00-21.00.
