Join fellow Blue Hens for a special evening at the VFMA with an exclusive “behind-the-scenes” tour of the museum, courtesy of UD alum Kathy Gillis AS’93 and VMFA Director of Conservation, followed by the museum's latest special exhibit, Hollywood Costume.

Organized by the Victoria & Albert Museum of London, Hollywood Costume explores the central role costume design plays in cinematic storytelling. Bringing together the most iconic costumes from a century of cinema, it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the clothes worn by unforgettable and beloved characters in films such as The Wizard of Oz, The Birds, My Fair Lady, Superman, Titanic, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and The Dark Knight Rises.
