LOS ANGELES, June 13 (UPI) -- The Hollywood Museum says its exhibit "The Barefoot Legend: David Carradine -- A Contemporary Renaissance Man" is to open next week.

Co-sponsored by The Hollywood Reporter, the exhibit honoring Carradine's life and career is to run from June 21 through September. On display will be iconic costumes, props and materials from his "Kung Fu" television show and "Kill Bill" movies, as well as numerous other items intended to present imagery and artifacts from his life as an actor, artist and musician.

"The Hollywood Museum is thrilled to present this milestone exhibit showcasing David Carradine's many awards and his exciting, fast-paced professional and personal life," Donelle Dadigan, the museum's president and founder, said in a statement. "The first of its kind to capture the many facets and talents of this truly contemporary Renaissance man, the exhibit is here for the public and fans to experience this summer."

Carradine died in Bangkok in June 2009. His death at 72 was ruled asphyxiation by hanging that was not a suicide. The actor was found hanging naked in a hotel closet with a rope tied around his neck and genitals. He had been in the Thai city working on a film at the time he died.
