Hemingway’s Heroine Exhibit
On May 18th the Ava Gardner Museum will open the “Hemingway’s Heroine” Exhibit, showcasing Ava’s close friendship with Ernest Hemingway. This exhibit will feature, for the first time, a movie costume reproduction. Danielle Lynch, a fashion designer from Raleigh who has been inspired by Ava’s fashions, will recreate the iconic black satin, single- shoulder strapped dress Ava wore in The Killers. Guests for the opening event are invited to a “Little Black Dress” party which starts at 6:30 pm themed appropriately to pay tribute to the sultry and chic Ava. There will be hors d’ oeuvres, beverages, and a cash prize to be awarded at 8 pm for the top fashionista of the evening. Cost per person is $35.00 or $60.00 per couple with tickets available online or by calling the museum.
