Head to MoPOP!
A captivating new exhibition that immerses visitors into the world of Disney, illustrating how our understanding of its iconic characters is shaped through the artistry and creativity of its costumes.
Using more than 70 original pieces, including ball gowns, sorcerers’ capes, military uniforms, tiaras, and of course glass slippers, the exhibition explores the vision, process, and craft used to create the costumes worn by some of the biggest names in entertainment. Heroes and Villains features costumes from some of Disney’s kindest heroes and toughest villains, as well as insights from designers, photographs, interactives, and a special film.
Opening Weekend is Saturday, June 5, and Sunday, June 6.
More Heroes & Villains
MoPOP will be the first museum to showcase the exhibition since it premiered at the 2019 D23 Expo… Throughout the exhibition, the work of Hollywood’s preeminent designers will be on display, including Academy Award®-winners Colleen Atwood, Sandy Powell, and Tony Walton, as well as Emmy® winner Ellen Mirojnick and Emmy nominees Eduardo Castro and Penny Rose. The exhibition’s main gallery will be split into three sections: “Disney Heroes,” “Disney Villains,” and “Spaces Between” — a place reserved for the costumes of Disney’s more complex antihero characters. “Cinderella’s Workshop,” a space centered around the beloved fairy-tale character’s dresses, will be another focal point, plus a handful of engaging interactive elements.
