The Dykeman Young Gallery is proud to present Hollywood Costumes Selections from the Dykeman Young Collection, a unique exhibition showcasing costumes from more than 50 films including Across The Universe, Catch Me If You Can, Chicago, O' Brother Where Art Thou, Austin Powers, Walk The Line and Kinsey. With this exhibition, the Dykeman Young Gallery gives the greater Jamestown area a special behind-the-scenes look at the art of costume design and its powerful role in filmmaking.
As visitors journey through the exhibition, they travel to various times and places experiencing the history, drama and comedy all over again, while simultaneously learning about what goes into crafting the perfect costume.
The Dykeman Young Collection is known in Hollywood for its impressive inventory of elegant evening wear, as well as its daytime wear, character wear and 20th century workwear. Academy Award-winning costume designer Ann Roth (The English Patient) described the Dykeman Young Collection as "high quality genuinely authentic with fabulous variety." Oscar-winning Designer Albert Wolsky (Bugsy and All That Jazz) said that he "wouldn't think of doing a period picture without visiting the Dykeman Young Collection. It's a secure 'go to' resource in mint condition."
