Fall 2012 Friends Preview - Katharine Hepburn: Dressed for Stage and Screen


For donors $40 or more

Katharine Hepburn: Dressed for Stage and Screen includes costumes Katharine Hepburn kept in her personal collection of performance clothes, wardrobe which she wore for publicity, and examples of “rebel chic” from her casual and rehearsal wear.  Augmented with film still, posters and playbills, the exhibition spans her long career in theater, film and television and also includes costume research, sketches and comments from Hepburn’s correspondence, scripts and notebooks from The Katharine Hepburn Papers of The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.

This exhibition has been organized by the Kent State University Museum in association with The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.

Guided tours of the exhibition will be offered every hour on the half-hour, 12:30 p.m. through 4:30 p.m.  

Invitations, which admit four, will be mailed out in September. The event will be from 12:00 p.m. to 6 p.m.

For more information, please call the Friends Office at 212.930.0653.
