Exhibition File – Katharine Hepburn Dressed for Stage and Screen

I love Katharine Hepburn and her strong sense of style. The exhibition Katharine Hepburn: Dressed for Stage and Screen, organized by the Kent State University Museum for the New York Public Library, celebrates her “rebel chic” attire.

The show contains both personal garments and costumes designed by Valentina, Howard Greer, Cecil Beaton, Irene, Walter Plunkett, and others. Also included are sketches, film stills, posters, playbills, and costume research.

It sounds delightful, but you don’t have all the time in the world to see it. Katharine Hepburn: Dressed for Stage and Screen closes January 12.

Address: Central Library, 10 Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn, NY
Hours: Monday 10-8, Tuesday 1-8, Wednesday 10-8, Thursday 1-8, Saturday 10-2
Admission: free
