Hepburn dresses to be exhibited at Appleton museum

Posted:

APPLETON (WKOW) -- Clothes worn by late actress Katharine Hepburn will soon be on display at an Appleton museum.

The exhibit will feature some of her rarely exhibited costumes from stage, screen and television, along with items from her personal collection on loan from the Kent State University Museum.

The exhibit is called "Katharine Hepburn: Dressed for Stage and Screen." It starts September 13 at The Trout Museum of Art in Appleton.

The exhibition will be curated by Jean Druesedow, director of The Kent State University Museum and author of "Rebel Chic," which is about Hepburn's style.

The museum acquired Hepburn's performance clothes from her estate. Before her 2003 death, she said she wanted her collection of performance clothes to be given to an educational institution.
