SUU Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery Exhibits The Tempest: Anatomy of a Production
For Immediate Release: April 16, 2008
(Southern Utah University, Cedar City, Utah) The SUU College of Performing and Visual Arts, in conjunction with the Utah Shakespeare Festival, will present The Tempest: Anatomy of a Production, an exhibit of the costumes, props, and scenery that creates the visual essence of the production. Each piece was created by the Utah Shakespearean Festival's Properties Department for last year's production of The Tempest. The exhibit runs June 26 through August 30, 2008.
Pearl Meadows, an artist from Springdale, commented when she saw the exhibit. “Walking into the gallery brings about memories of the darker side of The Tempest. It really has a brooding overtone that’s absolutely powerful.” She added, “There were two very memorable costumes from the production. It’s fascinating to see them up close.”
There will be an opening reception at the gallery on Thursday, June 26, 2008 at 5:00 p.m. The reception is open to the public and admission is free. Light refreshments will be served.
The Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday, Noon-7:00 p.m., and is located on the ground floor in the Braithwaite Liberal Arts Center building on the east end of the SUU campus.
