Museum: Portrait Gallery
Location: 1st Floor, East Side
The One Life gallery within the museum is devoted to the exploration of the life of one individual. This exhibition is dedicated to 20th-century icon Katharine Hepburn (May 12, 1907 - June 29, 2003), who carefully constructed and maintained her own myth from her earliest days in the studio system through more than 50 years on stage, screen, and television. The exhibition of 43 objects will also include her four Oscar statues -- the most won by anyone for best actress -- images from her life and career, and clips from a selection of her films, interviews, and television appearances.
