From Philadelphia To Monaco:
Grace Kelly Beyond the Icon
Discover the life of a local princess at the James A. Michener Art Museum
October 28, 2013-January 26, 2014
Explore the life of a homegrown princess during the new exhibition From Philadelphia To Monaco: Grace Kelly Beyond The Icon on view at the James A. Michener Art Museum.
Grace Kelly (1929-1982) may be the closest America has ever come to having a princess and her too-short life captivates people as much today as it did when she hit the silver screen and later married the prince of Monaco.
The Bucks County museum will be the first American venue to host the comprehensive exhibition, which illustrates the fairytale—Philadelphia girl to European princess—and delves into her roles as a screen legend, fashion icon, United Nations ambassador and arts and culture advocate.
From costumes and designer gowns to personal letters and memorabilia, including film clips and archival documents, the museum display reveals an unparalleled glimpse into the icon’s life.
While at the museum, visitors can explore a companion exhibit about the Bucks County Playhouse, where Kelly took the stage for the first time.
