OKLAHOMA CITY (May 9, 2024) - The Oklahoma City Museum of Art (OKCMOA) announced today the full lineup of films in its Edith Head film series, presented by Chuck Wiggin, which will accompany the summer exhibition Edith Head: Hollywood’s Costume Designer over 14 weeks. The exhibition, organized by OKCMOA and presented by The Ann Lacy Foundation, opens June 22 and will showcase the career of Oscar®-winner Edith Head (1897-1981), who designed costumes for hundreds of films during Hollywood’s Golden Age and won eight Academy Awards over the span of her career, more than any other woman to date.
