Description

Somewhere over the rainbow, we'd 100 percent steal those sparkly ruby slippers right off of Dorothy's dumb feet. We like to think we'd wear them better. But, honestly, the sequined red pumps would probably look silly sans blue gingham dress and braided pigtails.

Such is the power of movies: to create a fixed pop culture image that our brains just can't shake. To explore the iconic costumes of films ranging from Morocco to Moulin Rouge!, head to the Phoenix Art Museum's latest exhibition, “Hollywood Costume.” Touchstones like Marilyn Monroe's white dress from The Seven Year Itch and Christopher Reeve's bodysuit, capem, and tights from Superman: The Movie are on view among the 100-some costumes.

Also on view will be a reproduction of the slippers Judy Garland wore in The Wizard of Oz. But hands off; not only because we'll have our eye on 'em, but also because Phoenix Art Museum has, you know, alarms and guards and stuff.

See “Hollywood Costume” at 1625 North Central Avenue. The exhibition is on view through Sunday, July 6. Adult admission to this specially ticketed event is $20 and includes an estimated one- to two-hour viewing time. Hours Wednesday, March 26, are noon to 8:30 p.m. Visit www.phxart.org or call 602-257-1222.
