From May 19 to August 12, 2018, the Decorative Arts Center of Ohio will bring the magic of Hollywood to Lancaster with its second exhibition of the year, “Creating the Illusion: Costumes and Characters from the Paramount Archive.” The exhibition is curated by Randall Thropp, Paramount Pictures costume archivist.
Costumes from the films “Coming to America,” “Forrest Gump” and “Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation” are among the many films that will be featured in this exhibition that showcases memorable characters from more than modern-day Paramount Pictures films.
The exhibition was inspired by the book, “Creating the Illusion,” by Jay Jorgensen and Donald Scoggins. Forty-two costumes culled from the Paramount Archives will be on display in this colorful exhibition.
A special screening of “Green Grass of Wyoming,” parts of which were filmed at the Lancaster fairgrounds, will be held to celebrate its 70th anniversary. The movie had its world premiere in Lancaster on May 25, 1948 and now, almost 70 years to the day, the Skyview Drive-In and Fairfield County Heritage Association have partnered so a new generation can enjoy it. Show starts at dusk, there is no admission cost for this special event.
