Lecture + Book Signing: "Designs on Film: A Century of Hollywood Art Decoration" by Cathy Whitlock
Sunday, February 17 / 2 pm
From Scarlett's Tara, Norma Desmond's Sunset Boulevard, Rebecca's Manderlay, and Citizen Kane's Xanadu, to the richly detailed drawing rooms of the Age of Innocence and Marie Antoinette, the cinema is home to some of the world's most memorable images. Through the use of film design, production designers set the scene and transform dreams into a cinematic fantasy or widescreen reality. Join us for a lecture by Cathy Whitlock that covers the history of production design and set decoration and focuses on the important designs from each decade. Books will be available for purchase in the Museum Shop and a book signing will follow the lecture in the lobby of the museum.
Cathy Whitlock is an interior design consultant, lecturer, magazine writer, and the author.
