New Exhibit Is All About Oz

ROCKLAND, Maine (October 13, 2013)--Fans of "The Wizard of Oz" will have to go to Maine rather than to Kansas to see an exhibit of all things Oz going back more than a century.

The Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland opened off its "Wonderful World of Oz" exhibition on Saturday.

It features 107 items dating back to the 1900 book "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz," which has spawned movies, stage productions and spinoff merchandise.

The exhibit items come from the world's largest Wizard of Oz collection, owned by two Camden men who have more than 100,000 Oz-related items.

Among the things on display are the Wicked Witch of the West's hourglass, Dorothy's blue gingham dress, a Lollipop Guild munchkin outfit, a flying monkey and a pair of ruby slippers.
