Katherine Hepburn at the National Portrait Gallery

One Life “Kate: A Centennial Celebration”
Opening today

Katharine Hepburn, one of the most iconic actresses of the 20th century, is the latest person to be featured in the National Portrait Gallery’s “One Life” gallery. Hepburn was a 20th-century icon who carefully constructed and maintained her own myth, from her earliest days in the studio system through more than 50 years on stage, screen and television. The exhibition includes her four Oscar statuettes—the most won by anyone for best actress—images from her life and career and a video kiosk that will play clips from a selection of her work.

The National Portrait Gallery is open every day
from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Eighth and F Streets N.W.
Washington, DC
(202) 633-1000.
