Rainbowed: Chicago Theater: The Design Museum Takes Us Backstage
Society of Typographic Arts 100: Exhibition Identity Design Award
Design in theatre can take many forms, including costumes, lights, sound, props, and sets, among countless other examples. Setting the Stage celebrates the myriad ways design is employed in stage productions.
Using objects on loan from Chicago theatres, this exhibit will emphasize the diversity, depth, and breadth of theatres in the city and explore how words are translated by designers into a production. See the process behind the final products and learn more about how and why design decisions in theatres are made.
Celebrate the Year of Chicago Theatre with us and discover all that the city’s theatre has to offer through the objects which exemplify the soul of each institution.Learn more “Setting the Stage: Objects of Chicago Theatre” >
