Welcome to my personal Blog.
This is an exploding new experience for me.
It is, as if I have been wandering around in this forest looking for my crew, and suddenly I have discovered you.There you are.I am seeing you, and speaking to you, and you to me, and it is pure magic that leaves a non-computer geek weak. This is a new adventure for me with excitement; I look forward to the challenge.
My intentions are to use this Blog to answer questions, communicate ideas, and create a opportunity to share my knowledge and experience. I welcome questions from young people who are thinking about a career decision in makeup and hair, or those looking to make a change in profession.
I hope to personally meet you at one of the many Makeup and Beauty Expo’s which I attend as well as participate in around the country. Please take a moment and introduce yourself to me.
In 2010 the Westmore Academy was acquired by www.Empire.edu Sadly, in March of 2012 Empire decided, because of the nations continued economic problem as well as the US Bank’s reluctance to issue educational loans Empire would not maintain the Hollywood/ Burbank Makeup School. Empire has over 100 location across the United States.
Currently, The George Westmore Research Library & Museum is reviewing new educational opportunities, looking at new locations, and developing exhibits with local museums and educational institutions for special traveling exhibits.
I am proud to announce the launching of four new websites:
- My Personal “Blog” – www.MarvinGWestmore.wordpress.com
- Westmore Library & Museum”Website” – www.WestmoreMuseum.com
- Westmore Library & Museum “Blog” – www.WestmoreMuseum.wordpress.com
- Westmore “Virtural Tour” – www.MySpace.com/WestmoreMuseum
On October 3rd 2008 in Hollywood at a ceremony on Vine Street along the Hollywood Walk of Fame, my Father, and Grandfather will be recognized with a Star on the Boulevard for their outstanding contributions in Makeup and Hair Design and to Hollywood Film History. This is a great honor bestowed on our family after 91 years, (4 Generations) of working in Hollywood. Our Star was the last selected by former Hollywood Honorary Mayor Johnny Grant.
You can lean more about the Westmore history by visiting all three of new Westmore Museum Websites: the George Westmore Research Library & Museum “Website”, the George Westmore Research Library & Museum “Blog” and the George Westmore “Virtual Tour”.
Thank you for your caring revealed by your questions and comments.
I believe caring is contagious, Marv
