Elvis At 75

Elvis Aron Presley, a glazed ceramic bust by Robert Carston Arneson in 1978 is part of the exhibit “One Life: Echoes of Elvis” on January 7, 2010 at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. The one room exhibit explores the image and story of Presley since his death in 1977. Unconfirmed sightings aside, Elvis lives on for millions of his fans worldwide, and in cities across the globe many are getting ready to celebrate the King’s 75th birthday on January 8, 2010. The biggest party will be in Memphis, Tennessee where January 8, 2010 has already been proclaimed Elvis Presley Day, and events including live music and exhibits are planned. But celebrations are also happening globally, with Elvis fan clubs organizing events in Tokyo, London, Paris and elsewhere.

In this Dec. 10, 2009 photo, a bust of a young Elvis Presley and a reproduction of a family portrait with his parents are on display at the Elvis Presley Birthplace in Tupelo, Miss.
