"Star Power: Edward Steichen's Glamour Photography" at the Reynolda House
Experiencing "Star Power: Edward Steichen's Glamour Photograhpy" is among the top 5 things all North Carolinians should do this month according to Our State Magazine.
It’s being called the top fashion exhibition this season by Lucky Magazine, and maybe most telling of all, the granddaughter of the man whose photography is being honored, calls it the most creative installation of his work that she’s ever seen. Star Power: Edward Steichen’s Glamour Photography is on view through May 19 at Reynolda House Museum of American Art in Winston-Salem. Star Power explores the Golden Age of Hollywood in the late 20s through the 30s with Steichen’s images of luminaries like Catherine Hepburn, Gary Cooper, and Gloria Swanson. The exhibit is unique in that it also ties together Hollywood’s Golden Age with the Golden Age of Reynolda. Alongside the portraits by America’s first modern fashion photographer, viewers can look at the amazing gowns, shoes and art deco jewelry that the Reynolds family were wearing during the same time period. Reynolda House curator Alison Slaby met David Ford at the museum to explain this “cross-dressing” of art & couture.
