SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Costumes, furniture and other props used in Steven Spielberg’s 2012 film “Lincoln” are set to go on display in Springfield next month.
The items will be featured in an exhibit that opens Jan. 17 at Union Station, across the street from the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum.
The exhibition is called: “Lincoln: History to Hollywood.” It includes dresses worn by Sally Field, who played Marry Todd Lincoln, as well as a vignette of the first lady’s bedroom set. There’s also items used on the set for Lincoln’s office.
All the pieces in the collection are on loan from Spielberg and DreamWorks Studios.
“Lincoln” won two Academy Awards, including best actor for Daniel Day-Lewis’ portrayal of the president.
