The event will feature an award presentation, featuring clips from Close’s career introduced by her friends and colleagues.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the announcement was made by Ivan L Lustig, co-chairman of the museum's board of trustees, and Carl Goodman, the museum's executive director.
“Glenn Close is one of the most acclaimed actresses of our time, with nominations for six Academy Awards, 12 Golden Globes, 12 Emmys, and four Tonys. Whatever the role, from her star-making performances in The Big Chill and Fatal Attraction to her unforgettable portrayal of Patty Hewes in Damages, she commands our attention through the brilliance and emotional power of her work,” Lustig said.
Goodman added, “Glenn Close has a special place in the cultural life of New York, balancing her work in movies and television with her devotion to living theater. It is fitting that she is being honored by Museum of the Moving Image, one of the city’s most vibrant cultural institutions, and that the salute will play a vital role in supporting the museum’s education programs.”
