Adam stopped by The Hollywood Museum on Saturday to see his handiwork before speaking at The Art of Production Design
Oscar-nominee panel hosted by the Art Directors Guild and the Set Decorators Society of America.
The Grand Budapest Hotel
won a total of four Oscars including Best Production Design, Costume Design, Makeup and Hairstyling and Original Score.
The design of the film emerged from the collaboration between Wes Anderson and Adam Stockhausen. Stockhausen, who previously worked on The Darjeeling Limited, Moonrise Kingdom
and Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave
, knew this film would be a creative experience unlike any other. “We worked across these tiny, beautiful, little towns, and being there you become immersed completely in that world,” he says. “It became a very special journey.”
The Celebration of Entertainment Awards Exhibit
, which opened February 4 and is scheduled to run through Sunday, April 26, offers visitors a chance to see hundreds of authentic costumes, props and memorabilia from nominated films and TV shows. Highlights include the Dodge Challenger driven by Jake Gyllenhaal in Nightcrawler,
costumes worn by Amy Adams in Big Eyes,
Frances McDormand’s mother-of-the-groom dress from Olive Kitteridge
and the red leather jacket worn by Viola Davis in How to Get Away with Murder,
among many others.
