JUNE – Costume as Art by Alyssa Acord/ June 26, 7 pm / Open to All
We have all stood before our mirrors, looking at our reflection and hoping that what we wear shows a true representation of who we are to the world. Some of us are conservative, while others seek to wear their interests so the world knows what they enjoy. And then there is costume. There is an art and science to costuming as we know it today. And costume is in everything, from the news you watch to the movies you enjoy. We are surrounded by costuming. Alyssa Acord explores this concept of how costume and art converge in her June lecture. I can’t wait to hear more about it, and we hope to see you there, too. Extra points if you wear your own costume!
