Ellsworth Kelly's Collaboration With Calvin Klein

Where: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia

When: May 31, 2013

What: In honor of artist Ellsworth Kelly's 90th birthday, Calvin Klein creative director Francisco Costa modernized a dress that Kelly designed for a friend in 1952. The dress was inspired by Kelly's iconic painting "Red Yellow Blue White," painted in the same year. The dress will be produced in limited quantities and donated to the Met's Costume Institute and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which owns "Red Yellow Blue White."
