You may not know his name, but you definitely know his work. Explore the work from famed costume designer William Ivey Long, designer behind 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show,' 'Cinderella' and more.

By Kelsey Van
Don't say we didn't warn you—prepare to be blown away by both the costume design and the actual artistry of the exhibition. The Mint has really out done themselves on this one!

"Exploring the theatrical costume designer's work from 2007 to today, this exhibition ranges from 'Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella' to the television specials 'Grease Live!' and 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again.

North Carolina native William Ivey Long is one of the most renowned theatrical costume designers working today. This exhibition, organized by The Mint Museum, explores Long's most recent work, from 2007 to today. It features the theatrical productions The Lost Colony (redesigned 2007–2008), The Mystery of Edwin Drood (2012), Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella (2013), Little Dancer (2014), and On the Twentieth Century (2015), as well as the television specials Grease Live! (2016), and The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again (2016). Focusing on Long's process, it features sketches, swatches, mood boards, and other preparatory materials in addition to the costumes themselves. Because costume design is not an area in which the Mint collects, it provides visitors with exposure to this form of art and allow for comparison of the different goals of theatrical costume and fashion. The exhibition is co-curated by Annie Carlano and Rebecca Elliot. It will be accompanied by a scholarly and lavishly illustrated book." –Mint Museum
