Join us for a conversation with two of the foremost authorities on Katharine Hepburn. Judy Samelson, former editor and current production manager and writer for Playbill,
and Jean Druesedow, former director of the Kent State University Museum will share their extensive knowledge and insight into Katharine Hepburn and our exhibition Dressed for Stage & Screen
. Samelson and Druesedow are both contributing essayists to Katharine Hepburn: Rebel Chic
, a tribute to the formidable icon.
Samelson and Druesdow will speak with the Frick’s Chief Curator and Director of Collections, Sarah Hall, about the exquisite collection of clothing, costumes, and ephemera in the exhibition, as well as the impact Katharine Hepburn still has on art, culture, and fashion today.
