Meet me at the Katharine Hepburn:Dressed for Stage and Screen Exhibit

Hollywood leading lady Katharine Hepburn knew the importance of costume in defining character and drawing the audience into a story. Organized by the Kent State University Museum, Katharine Hepburn: Dressed for Stage and Screen includes costumes the legendary actress 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.
