Build Social Studies Background Knowledge with Hollywood Costumes Visit before 2/17/14


The Hollywood Costumes exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is only here through February 17, 2014. This exhibit is a delightful way to expose students, of all ages,  to a wide variety of social history as seen in film and the costumes the characters wear.  The exhibit is like a massive social history timeline. Tickets are $10 for students with ID and youth ages 7-17, and children 6 and under are free.  Further, if one has a student ID, an annual membership may be purchased for $10 which makes this exhibit free for a VMFA member as well as all other special exhibits free during the membership  year.  This is a rare chance here in Richmond to see costumes from films like My Fairy Lady, Cleopatra, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, The Wizard of Oz, Pirates of the Caribbean, Spiderman, Batman, Superman, Titanic, Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events, Gone with the Wind, Ben-Hur, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and so many more.  This exhibit has universal appeal to boys and girls, men and women!  Not to be missed!
