Integration across disciplines isn’t just a learning outcome.  It’s a concept come to life in the Elzay Gallery’s Ezekiel Award Winners exhibit. Theater and art have always had a partnership, but the exhibit solidifies that bond. Sketches and photographs showing lighting design, scenic design, scenic craft and costume design are the exhibit’s mainstays. 

The photographs and sketches exemplify outstanding theater design and all of its forms. From the dramatic lighting of Arabian Nights to the lavish costumes of Pride and Prejudice, visitors can expect to see a range of details that make theater come to life. 

Bright colors and weaving lines make for a zany and energetic atmosphere in Tamara L. Honesty’s scenic design for “Becky’s New Car.” Rebecca Wolf creates motion on a stationary stage with her Industrial Revolution-inspired scenic design for “Around the World in 80 Days.” Even a life-size goat made by Linda DiBernardo is shown, rounding out the variety of odd and ingenious inventions that made each of the productions a success. 

Award-winners are from playhouses and universities across Ohio, including Kent State University and the University of Cincinnati. Though none are from Ohio Northern University, students and staff alike may enjoy viewing the fine craftsmanship of their colleagues in the arts.

The exhibit will be shown in the Elzay Gallery from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. through Feb 27.
