Artie Shaw: Time Is All You've Got

In 2024, CultureVerse worked with Academy Award®-winning producer/director Brigitte Berman to create a 3D immersive experience celebrating her feature documentary “Artie Shaw: Time Is All You’ve Got” which won an Oscar® at the 1987 Academy Awards Ceremony. Berman’s film portrays the life and music of the brilliant and mercurial clarinetist, composer and bandleader Artie Shaw. Shaw’s complex love/hate relationship with his own celebrity caused him to walk away from performing almost as many times as he walked away from marriages with the most beautiful women.  The digital exhibit offers a rich array of media highlighting clips and visual images from the documentary and Berman’s career.
