More than a decade after her death, Princess Diana’s memory still stirs interest and emotion. The award-winning exhibition Diana, A Celebration, which chronicles the life of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, will open at the Putnam Museum on September 14, 2013, and will remain on view through January 5, 2014. On loan from Althorp Estate in England, the exhibition chronicles the life and work of Diana, Princess of Wales, through 150 objects, including her famed royal wedding gown
“The Putnam is honored to be one of the last three places this remarkable exhibit will ever be available to the public. The exhibition gives us an opportunity to be close to the compassion and sense of natural sophistication for which Princess Diana became legendary. All of us who were old enough to comprehend what we saw on television remember the Royal Wedding and Princess Diana’s amazing wedding gown. This exhibition gives us an opportunity to relive that moment in modern culture as we can literally stand beside her gown with its 25-foot train,” stated Putnam President/CEO, Kim Findlay.
The exhibition presents the life and humanitarian work of one of the 20th century’s most remarkable women through nine galleries containing 150 objects-ranging from her royal wedding gown and 28 of her designer dresses to family heirlooms, personal mementoes, paintings and rare home movies and photos. The exhibition is on loan from the Althorp Estate, the Spencer family’s 500-year-old ancestral home. Once the global tour ends in summer 2014, the priceless collection will go to Diana’s sons as was directed in her will. The items will remain with the family and be safeguarded for future generations.
The exhibition showcases the life and work of one of the most remarkable women of her time – certainly one of the most photographed, with over one billion television viewers who watched the 1981 Royal Wedding. Her charm, beauty and
easy grace touched people worldwide during her short and complex life.
Diana, A Celebration is produced by Arts and Exhibitions International, in association with the Althorp Estate.
