The Kent State University Museum Honors Fashion Icon Katharine Hepburn
On October 2, 2010 the Kent State University Museum will celebrate its 25th anniversary with the opening of Katharine Hepburn: Dressed for Stage and Screen, an exhibit featuring Hepburn’s classic performance clothes from her 60 year career. The Museum received the fashion icon’s collection in 2008 straight from Hepburn’s wardrobe. It was responsible for correctly identifying which performance each outfit appeared in with help from photographs, movie frames and stage stills that will accompany all the outfits displayed. The performance clothes to be displayed include: stage costumes from The Philadelphia Story, Without Love and Coco; screen costumes from Stage Door, Adam’s Rib and Long Day’s Journey Into Night, and television movies such as Love Among the Ruins. Hepburn’s signature beige trousers with linen jackets will also be on display.
The exhibit celebrating the life and career of Katharine Hepburn will be supported by special events and programming at the Museum, across the Kent Campus and Northeast Ohio. The exhibit runs until September 4, 2011.
