Alfred Wertheimer’s Elvis Kneeling At The Mosque, taken in Richmond, Virginia, on June 30, 1956, graces the cover of the latest issue of My VMFA magazine. Distributed to Virginia Museum of Fine Arts members, this issue of the magazine promotes the upcoming Elvis At 21 exhibition.
The exhibition, featuring 56 of Wertheimer’s photos, will appear at the VMFA in Richmond December 24, 2011, through March 18, 2012.
In January, the museum will hold three special Elvis events, including a panel discussion with Wertheimer and local Elvis experts on January 20.
