The Golden Age of Cinema shared the stage with the golden years of paper doll production and popularity between the 1920s and 1950s. As movie personalities became popular they starred in their own paper doll books, complete with fashionable wardrobes and scenes to delight even the toughest critic. This exhibit, which is co-curated by Nan C. Moorehead, will feature more than 200 sets of paper dolls, as well as historical items from the museum’s collection. A limited-edition paper doll will also be available for purchase in the gift shop.
The museum will host a grand opening matinee to kick off the exhibit on Saturday, April 7. All are welcome to attend from 1 -4 p.m.
