In a preview article about the 57th annual Ann Arbor Film Festival, directed by Stamps alumnus Leslie Raymond (MFA ‘99), writer Meredith Bruckner highlighted an art installation by Stamps professor Rebekah Modrak’s Dressing Up + Down class.
On Friday, March 29, a wearable art exhibition by University of Michigan Stamps School students will take place at 9 p.m. in the Michigan Theater Grand Foyer. Under professor Rebekah Modrak’s direction, students in the course Dressing Up + Down are given a theme and are tasked to design clothes to wear to a pop-up event and exhibition.
For the film festival, they were tasked with designing outfits based on cartoonist Sally Cruikshank’s colorful and psychedelic short “Quasi at the Quackadero.”
Last year, the class designed costumes inspired by the sinking of the Titanic and re-enacted the event at Canham Natatorium.
