When: Thursday, August 27, 7:00 p.m
Where: DMA Horchow Auditorium, 1717 N Harwood St, Dallas, TX 75201

Tickets are $30 for the public; $25 for DMA members, Friends of the Dallas Public Library, seniors, and educators; $15 for students.

Drawing on years of research, Landis has uncovered both a treasure trove of costume sketches and photographs— many of them previously unpublished —and a dazzling array of first-person anecdotes that inform the images. Dressed is one book no film and fashion lover should be without. Landis counts among her film credits for costume design: Animal House, The Blues Brothers, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Michael Jackson’s Thriller, and Coming to America, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award.
