The official dedication for Holly Woodlawn’s marker, will be at the public memorial today at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles. Holly’s close pal, performance artist, Penny Arcade posted this note on Facebook;
“This is the beautiful niche for Holly Woodlawn at Hollywood Forever Cemetary…with Holly’s favorite image of herself, her lip print and signature finessed by her friend, caretaker and heir Robert Starr.
While the naysayers and nasty negatives were spreading paranoia…even questioning WHY Holly should have a physical presence in Hollywood….they are all quick to jump on the band wagon now that The Academy recognized Holly in the Oscars In Memoriam.
See the little vases where you can leave a flower in remembrance.
I have been in talks with Mia Yoo at LaMama, Etc since Holly’s passing December 6th 2015 to find the perfect date for Holly’s NY Memorial.
I am happy to announce the date is Saturday May 14th and the time will be announced soon.”
