Award-Winning Exhibition About the People's Princess to Conclude
More than fifteen years after her death, Princess Diana's memory still stirs interest and emotion. The award-winning exhibition Diana: a celebration, which chronicles the life of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, will run at Cincinnati Museum Center through August 17 with group discounts available through July 31, 2014.
The exhibition presents the life and humanitarian work of Princess Diana through nine galleries containing 150 objects—ranging from her royal wedding gown and twenty-eight of her designer dresses to family heirlooms, personal mementos, paintings, and rare home movies and photos. The exhibition is on loan from the Althorp Estate, the Spencer family's 500-year-old ancestral home.
The exhibition showcases the life and work of one of the most remarkable women of her time—certainly one of the most photographed—with more than 1 billion television viewers who watched the 1981 Royal Wedding. Her charm, beauty, and easy grace touched people worldwide during her short and complex life.
A series of 150 stunning objects chronicle Princess Diana's life and invite the visitor to share the milestones of her many roles: as a youngster, schoolgirl, and athlete; as the shy kindergarten teacher who captured the heart of the Prince and the public; as the young, ravishing royal bride; as the devoted mother, sister, and daughter; and as the tireless charity advocate and spokeswoman. The strength of the Spencer women and their roots in the bucolic 500-year-old Althorp Estate form the backdrop for Diana's formative years.
Diana: a celebration is produced by Arts and Exhibitions International, in association with the Althorp Estate.
