Tim Gunn, fashion consultant
Janie Bryant, costume designer
Julie Taymor, director and designer
Catherine Zuber, costume designer
Tim Gunn and a stellar panel of today's most visionary and influential costume designers explore the ways in which painting and other visual arts of the past and the present serve as an enduring inspiration in their work for stage, screen and television. Join Janie Bryant, Emmy-Award winner ("Deadwood" and "Mad Men"), Tony-Award winner Julie Taymor ("The Lion King," "Across the Universe," "The Tempest"); and Tony-Award winner Catherine Zuber ("South Pacific," "The Light in the Piazza"), as they discuss how the visual arts of the past—and the collections of the Met itself—shape their own art and serve as touchstone and context for understanding their achievements in costuming in a variety of media.
This lecture is supported by the Mrs. Joseph H. King Fund.
