Dress Like A Movie Star & Get A Free Ticket

Posted Oct 16th, 2012 by Terri Sharp  Category: Arts & Entertainment

 

Lights, camera, action! Visit the Toledo Museum of Art dressed in costume as your favorite movie star on Saturday, Oct. 27, and your ticket to see Made in Hollywood: Photographs from the John Kobal Foundation is free.

Use the Grove Place entrance to the Museum, walk the red carpet and be photographed before making your way to this glamorous exhibition.
Made in Hollywood focuses on the stars, the sets and the scenes created by the American film industry and captured by the most important Hollywood studio photographers between 1920–1960. From the silent era through the end of the studio system in the late 1950s, these camera artists captured and created the magic that Hollywood symbolized.

Featuring some 90 images, Made in Hollywood offers a glimpse into the world of fantasy, glamour and perfection that the image makers produced—images that have ensured their names are etched into the pantheon of fine art photography. Toledo is the last stop for this traveling exhibition organized by the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, making it the last place to see these vintage prints on display together.
Don’t have a costume to wear? Regular admission tickets to the exhibition for nonmembers are $8 for adults and $5 for seniors (ages 65 and older) and students (ages 6–22). Admission is free for Museum members.

Made in Hollywood is made possible by Museum members and sponsored in part by Taylor Cadillac. A companion catalogue and other exhibition-related merchandise are available through the Museum Store.

Admission to the Museum is free. For more information, visit www.toledomuseum.org.
