RICHMOND, VA.- VMFA’s fall exhibition, Hollywood Costume, celebrates a century of costume design and its contribution to cinematic history in American culture. Visitors can step behind the scenes to explore the collaborations between directors, actors and costume designers that bring to life some of the most unforgettable and beloved screen characters. Hollywood Costume is on view November 9, 2013 – February 17, 2014.

Visitors can experience traveling between soundstages, walking among costumes from the silent era to today’s digitally enhanced productions. The exhibition represents movies from the Golden Age to modern blockbusters, including The Wizard of Oz, Cleopatra, The Blues Brothers, Shakespeare in Love, Titanic, Moulin Rouge, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, Casino Royale, Twilight: New Moon, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and The Dark Knight Rises.

Hollywood Costume includes costumes that have never left private or archival collections in California, and most have never been publicly displayed or seen beyond the secure walls of studio archives.

“Visitors to this exhibition will gain a fresh understanding and appreciation of costume design in America’s film industry,” Director Alex Nyerges said. “Cinema is considered by many to be the greatest and most broadly accessible art form of the 20th and 21st centuries, and this ground-breaking display of iconic costumes will offer a unique insight into the art of movie-making.”

Also at VMFA this fall is Made in Hollywood: Photographs from the John Kobal Foundation, which features more than 90 prints by more than 50 of the most important photographers working in Hollywood 1920–1960.
