We plan to open the DreamWorks exhibit Clouds and Darkness on February 12 this year with a special opening event. This project started as an attempt years ago to acquire a prop from the movie Lincoln for the collection. However, with the current collecting value of movie memorabilia a contribution was out of the question. Steven Wilson was able to secure this loan for nine-months of several garments used in the movie, as a centerpiece of what we hope will be a popular exhibit.
