Brigham Young University’s Museum of Art just opened a new exhibit called, “Cut! Costume and the Cinema” last week. This exhibit features 40 period costumes worn by film actors and actress like Keira Knightley, Johnny Depp, Natalie Portman, Daniel Craig and more. The costumes are presented by Exhibits Development Group in cooperation with Cosprop Ltd., London, England.
The Museum of Art opened the exhibit with a reception in a Hollywood Red Carpet style with photo opportunities and refreshments. Later in the evening, the museum hosted an outdoor movie showing of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) in their sculpture garden. The reception was well attended by the university and local community.
This is the first time Brigham Young University’s Museum of Art has exhibited costumes. Hopefully there will be more exhibits like this in the future!
