Princess Grace of Monaco Exhibit
To celebrate the 90 Anniversary of the birth of Grace Patricia Kelly of Philadelphia, what she meant to Philadelphia and eventually to the world, the Chestnut Hill Community Association will display memorabilia on loan from the East Falls Historical Society of the Grace Kelly Gallery located at Chestnut Hill College.
Chestnut Hill College’s glorious rotunda with its grand piano and the adjoining parlor is a perfect location to view Grace’s Christmas cards from the Palace showing her family over the years. View personal invitations to events at the palace to family members, plus a signed and numbered portrait of Grace dressed in the Order of St. Charles, an honorary title bestowed on her by Prince Rainier as a present for their first Christmas as husband and wife. Attendees will also see framed posters of her eleven movies and dolls dressed as characters in her movies. Of particular interest will be the original programs of Grace’s appearances at East Fall’s Old Academy Players.
The exhibit will be on display throughout the month of December in the Chestnut Hill College Redmond Room of the St. Joseph Hall Rotunda (9601 Germantown Ave). Visitors should call 215-242-7777 if interested in coming to view the exhibit. Visit chestnuthill.org for more information on the exhibit.
