914Works to Exhibit Scenic Models by SU Drama
An exhibition of scenic models from the Department of Drama (SU Drama) in the College of Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) will serve as the inaugural show at 914Works, VPA’s new space at 914 E. Genesee St., Syracuse.
“Art, Design and Concept: The Process of Scenic Design For the Theater” will run Feb. 21-March 7. An opening reception will be held on Friday, Feb. 21, from 6-8 p.m.
The scenic model is one of the tools that theatrical scenic designers use as part of their creative process to represent the appearance of the final stage setting. Models communicate the shape, volume and relationship of elements of the setting in the performance space and showcase the art, design and conceptual ideas that create a visual representation of the performance environment.
The opening of “Art, Design and Concept” coincides with the opening of the Department of Drama’s production of “Speed-the-Plow,” which features scenic design by SU Drama students. Learn more at http://vpa.syr.edu/drama.
914Works is an intimate space for VPA students and faculty to present individual or group exhibitions, readings and small-scale performances. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. For more information, contact email@example.com.
