Costume and Beyond

Costume and Beyond
December 2, 2021 - January 8, 2022

Costume and Beyond is an exhibition of work by former University of Tennessee Head of Design for Theatre, Marianne Custer, and Clarence Brown Theatre Head Draper, Kyle Schellinger. In this exhibit, two artists blur the line between costume craft and art. Their work is born in theatre practice and emerges as sculpture. The impulse to make hats transforms leather into sculptural expressions from nature. The impulse to make historical gowns becomes a sculptural exploration of material and scale.
