Spotlight Talk: Casey Chew and Esherick-Inspired Set Design
November 28 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm |
Join us for a conversation with arborist, woodworker, and beloved WEM staff member, Casey Chew! We’ll discuss the many ways Casey drew inspiration from Wharton Esherick’s work for developing wonderful, prismatic stage sets in collaboration with our artist-in-residence, Martha McDonald
. We’ll talk with Casey about the process for creating a set piece inspired by Wharton Esherick’s Corner Desk for Helene Fischer
(1931) from photographs, and the challenges of translating two dimensions to three! We’ll also be hearing how Casey’s experience as an arborist informs the way he works with wood!
This is a free online event; advance reservations are required. There will be time for Q&A at the end of the conversation. Please register below to receive instructions on how to join us! If able, please consider a $5 donation to support our ongoing programs. Donate HERE.
We look forward to seeing you there!
