DOYLESTOWN, PA.- The Michener Art Museum will present an exhibit on Grace Kelly's life October 31, 2013, through January 26, 2014. The Michener is the first American venue for this interactive exhibition.

Prince Albert of Monaco will attend the opening.

"We are excited to dedicate our three largest galleries for this major exhibition, and will organize a companion exhibition about the Bucks County Playhouse, where Grace made her stage debut," says Michener Director & CEO Lisa Tremper Hanover. "We have timed this exhibition to coincide with a renewed interest in Grace, just as Nicole Kidman will embody the role in a film opening in 2014."

This is the first exhibit to trace the unique path Grace Kelly took from Philadelphia to Monaco, inviting viewers to discover the life of Grace Kelly (1929-1982) beyond the fairy tale. Through innovative use of sound, film and technology this exhibition brings us up close to the stage and screen legend, fashion icon, princess, United Nations advocate for children, and international spokesperson for arts and culture. Her Philadelphia family included prominent sportsmen who introduced rowing to the region.

With unprecedented access to Kelly's personal objects from the archives of the Palace of Monaco and the Grimaldi Forum, the exhibition illustrates her life through letters, photographs, awards, jewelry, couture fashion and other personal artifacts, as well as film clips, playbills and souvenirs from her acting career. An online fashion contest will be conducted via social media.

This exhibit on Grace Kelly's life was produced by the Grimaldi Forum Monaco and Exposium, based on a display at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
