Timeless Audrey, a traveling exhibit based on the life and career of actress, icon and humanitarian, Audrey Hepburn, will make its European premiere at Berlin’s Hauptbahnhof, the city’s main railway station on March 13, 2009 through May 10, 2009.
As beautiful and elegant as was the woman herself, the exhibit offers over 1,200 items belonging to Miss Hepburn, each artfully displayed in eleven individual time capsules spanning her life. Items on display include Miss Hepburn’s private wardrobe, costumes, jewelry, letters, books, home movie clips, wedding dresses and numerous other treasured memorabilia.
Timeless Audrey is a fundraising tool that supports UNICEF’s All Children In School educational initiative aimed at bringing 115,000,000 children, two-thirds of whom are girls, a quality basic education. Education, Miss Hepburn believed, gives children the strongest start in life and offers the best hope for their future.
The exhibit was created by the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund, a U.S. non-profit organization started in 1994 by Audrey’s sons Sean Ferrer and Luca Dotti, along with Audrey’s long time companion, Robert Wolders. Both Sean and Luca will attend the opening of Timeless Audrey in Berlin on March 12th.
