Charlie Cinnamon: Legendary Press Agent, June 19 through mid-September at the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU, Miami Beach, is a singular look at star-studded treasures from his personal archives, such as diamond cufflinks given to him by Elizabeth Taylor, as well as at the behind-the-scenes world of the entertainment industry.

Cinnamon, who continued working until the age of 94, died in 2016.
