The Real to Reel exhibit is designed to shine a spotlight on 100+ years of content, costumes, props and memorabilia from films, TV shows and digital offerings. The exhibit will also feature special costumes worn by Jordan during his long career.

“The museum welcomes the opportunity to create and showcase this important exhibition, sharing with the public the artistic expression and extraordinary significance of the LGBTQ+ culture and its effect and impact on the world through the medium of entertainment,” Dadigan said of the works, houses in the Hollywood Museum that is located in the historic Max Factor Building.
