Sequins in the Sand, BHoF’s inaugural exhibition in its new Vegas location, celebrates 20 years of the Miss Exotic World pageant, from its roots in the Helendale desert to the glitz and glamour of the Vegas stage. Using photos from legendary burlesque photographers including Don Spiro, Derek Jackson, Bob Debris, and others, as well as artifacts and documents, the exhibition tells the story not just of a growing competition but of the revival and growth of burlesque itself through the 1990s and 2000s.
