Exhibit coming to Doylestown looks at life of Grace Kelly
PHILADELPHIA - August 17, 2013 (WPVI) -- The world thinks of Grace Kelly as a fashion icon, movie star, princess, wife and mother, yet in Philadelphia she's first and foremost remembered as a hometown girl who never forgot her roots.
So organizers of a new exhibit on Kelly's upbringing, Hollywood career and ascent to royalty say it's fitting that the show is making its only U.S. stop in the area where she spent her early years.
"Grace Kelly: Beyond the Icon" opens Oct. 28 at the Michener Art Museum in suburban Doylestown, not far from where Kelly made her professional stage debut at the Bucks County Playhouse in 1949.
On view will be personal photos and correspondence, her 1954 Oscar for "The Country Girl," film clips and home movies, as well as iconic fashions she made famous.
