Exhibits Honor Grace Kelly

Oct 11, 2007
Grace Kelly, the Princess of Monaco, will be the focus of two exhibits this fall in connection with the 25th anniversary of her untimely death.

Who was Grace Kelly?
She was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1929. She moved to New York and eventually to Monaco when she met and married Prince Rainier III in 1956. She was a fashion icon, an arts enthusiast, and a fairytale princess of the 1950s.

She appeared in a dozen or more movies and won an Oscar for her role in The Country Girl. She stopped acting once she met her husband.

After marrying her prince, Grace moved to Monaco, got involved in several charity efforts, and soon won the hearts of the people. She was dubbed The Princess of Monaco. She then committed herself to helping up and coming talents reach their full potential. She was passionate about the arts.

The Exhibits Honoring Grace Kelly
There are two exhibits this fall that will feature the life and belongings of Grace Kelly. The first exhibit started July 12 and ran through to September 23, 2007, at the Espace Ravel in the Grimaldi Forum Monaco. The Monaco exhibit is featuring a tribute to Grace and follows her life from being a Philadelphia girl to a Hollywood star.

The exhibit features a walking tour that highlights events from Grace Kelly's life and shows why people loved her so much. The exhibition in Monaco also showcases a display of clothes, private letters, accessories she once wore, and more.

'The Grace Kelly Year' is an exhibition that highlights the Princess of Monaco's shining moments.

The second exhibition, October 15-25, will be a tribute to the Princess of Monaco in New York. The exhibit will feature a picture display showing Grace Kelly's diversity and her appreciate for the arts. In addition, the Annual Princess Grace Awards Gala will be held in New York October 25.

Items from Grace Kelly's personal wardrobe and jewelry collection will be auctioned off for charity at the event. Items included in the auction will be:
* A blue satin dress she wore to the Oscars.
* A taffeta dress she wore when she met Prince Rainier III of Monaco.
* A beige silk dress from her engagement night.
* Two princess outfits she wore for special occasions.
* Her 10.47 karat diamond engagement ring.

All proceeds are to benefit Grace Kelly's charity, the Princess Grace Foundation, which assists emerging talents in many forms of art.

The Princess of Monaco Remembered
Grace Kelly was a woman of class and dignity. She won the hearts of the people of Monaco relatively quickly after getting married there. She is buried in Monaco after having a stroke and crashing her car in 1982 at the age of 52. Her family has lived in a palace in Monaco with an amazing view of the Mediterranean Sea, though they will never be the same after their devastating loss.

As the former Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly lives on through the memories of her in her movies, her sense of style and elegance, and her family that she and Prince Rainier raised in Monaco.

The two exhibits honor Grace Kelly 25 years after her death. The exhibitions both celebrate her life and everything she was able to accomplish.
