Summer Exhibits With A Hollywood Connection

Depending on where you are in the world, or maybe on where you're going on vacation/holiday there are a couple of interesting Hollywood related art exhibits on display this summer. 




Starstruck  an exhibit of famous costumes from Oscar and BAFTA winning films will be at the Ulster Museum in Belfast from July 1 - September 25.  The exhibit includes costumes from The King's Speech, Downton Abbey, Shakespeare in Love, The Duchess, and other award winning films.




  

Glamour of the Gods a new exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery in London examines the importance of photography in creating movie stars. Featured are photographs of stars like Clark Gable and Carole Lombard,  Marlon Brando, Vivien Leigh, and James Dean. Many of the photos are vintage prints and date from the 1920's -1960's when the studio system dominated the film industry and had great influence in creating the image of their stars. The exhibit runs from July 7  - October 23.
