The exhibit is called "Katharine Hepburn: Dressed for Stage and Screen." It starts Sept. 13 at The Trout Museum of Art in Appleton.

The exhibition will be curated by Jean Druesedow, director of The Kent State University Museum and author of "Rebel Chic," which is about Hepburn's style.

The museum acquired Hepburn's performance clothes from her estate. Before her 2003 death, she said she wanted her collection of performance clothes to be given to an educational institution.
