Liza Minnelli has had an incredible career in Hollywood. From her Oscar-winning performance in Cabaret from 1972 to her appearances on Arrested Development, she’s gained tons of admirers and fans over the years. And now she’s giving back to all of them.
Minnelli is putting up a ton of memorabilia she’s collected over the years up for auction with Profiles in History. The iconic actress says she’s looking to downsize her life and doesn’t need all the things she’s collected, and wants to share them with her fans.
“Throughout my long career I have collected wonderful possessions and memorabilia and now I’ve reached a point in my life where I want to simplify and share with my fans who have always been there for me,” Minnelli said.
In addition to memorabilia belonging to Minnelli, there will also be items and collectibles that belonged to her mother, the equally iconic Judy Garland.
Items that will be up for auction will be the costume worn by Minnelli in her famous Cabaret performance, a check from MGM studios given to Garland when she was only 13 and a 1971 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow.
The auction will take place in California in late May, but the entire collection will be available for the public to view for free at the Paley Center in Beverly Hills throughout most of April.
So even if you can’t afford to buy anything, at least you’ll be able to look at in-person.
