Gayle Anderson was live in Downtown Los Angeles to get an up close look at the costumes from the most recent Oscar-nominated films at the 21st Annual Art of Motion Picture Costume Design exhibition currently on display at the FIDM Museum and Galleries now through Saturday, April 27, 2013.
Since its inception in 1992, the Art of Motion Picture Costume Design exhibition at the FIDM Museum and Galleries has honored the incredible work of costume designers in the film industry. Now in its 21st year, the 2013 exhibition features costumes from selected 2012 films, including all five Academy Award nominees for Best Costume Design. The exhibition offers visitors a close-up view of the costumer’s art from films such as A Royal Affair; Anna Karenina; Argo; Django Unchained; Hitchcock; Les Miserables; Lincoln; Mirror, Mirror; Skyfall; Snow White and the Huntsman; and other films.
Admission to the exhibition is FREE to the public. Museum hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Museum is closed Sundays, Mondays, and holidays. Parking is available underneath the FIDM building at 9th Street just before Grand Avenue for $5 per day. Validation is not available. Additional parking is available at surrounding parking lots and parking meters. Rates vary from $3 to $8 per day.
Founded in 1978, the FIDM Museum & Galleries Foundation, Inc. provides students, researchers, designers, and the public with resources to examine the roles of historic fashion, accessories, textiles, jewelry, fragrance, and related ephemera in their relationship to society, history, art, and technology. The collections are sustained by standard museum practices for continual acquisition, preservation, and display. Educational, outreach, and volunteer programs support the scholarly interpretation of the collections. The FIDM Museum and Galleries are part of the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, which was founded in 1969 by current FIDM President Tonian Hohberg. Hohberg’s vision was the creation of an exciting learning environment within which students could master art and design disciplines. Beginning with the first downtown Los Angeles campus, FIDM has grown to four campuses (Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, San Francisco) and 20 majors. To learn more click FIDM.
