In a groundbreaking new exhibit, the costumes from Marvel's Black Panther are on display in Detroit at the Charles H. Wright Museum! 💥🐈‍⬛ Something you can see #OnlyInDetroit until March 2024, "Afrofuturism in Costume Design" features over 60 iconic works by two-time Academy Award winning costume designer Ruth E. Carter from films like Malcolm X, Coming 2 America, Amistad, Selma, The Butler, and more. 🎥 Over three decades in film, television, and theater, the exhibit includes costumes that were worn by actors and celebrities like Denzel Washington, LeBron James, Eddie Murphy, Chadwick Boseman, Oprah Winfrey, Michael B. Jordan, and Lupita Nyong'o! 💯 Carter was the first Black person to win in the costume design category, earning Marvel Studios their first Oscar. 🏆 Her devotion to retraining the eye to see beauty through costume design and telling stories that enrich the humanity of the Black experience cements her legacy as a preeminent voice on Afro aesthetics, and Detroit's reputation as a global city home to unmatched creativity and culture. 🏙️
