Fri 2/2-Sun 9/2
Actress Katharine Hepburn was known for her bold, iconic performances in movies such as The Philadelphia Story, Adam’s Rib and Stage Door. She was also known for her iconic look, an elegant combination of wide-legged trousers and stylish tailored jacket that openly flouted the conventionally “feminine” look.
The Kent State University Museum put together an exhibit titled Katharine Hepburn Dressed for Stage and Screen, which has been traveling around the country for past seven years.
It now returns to the KSU Museum, where it was last seen in 2010. It will go on view Fri 2/2 and run through Sun 9/2. The exhibit contains costumes Hepburn wore in both movies and stage productions, as well as posters, playbills, photos and other items from her 6-year career. (She died in 2003 at the age of 96).
It opens Fri 2/2 with a tea reception and media preview @ 2-4pm. Tickets are $15. Museum admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and $3 for those under 18.
