The Eugene Weekly profiles alumnus Michael Curry. The Lion King, for which he designed costumes, masks, and puppets including, "two-story giraffes, the life-size elephants, the leaping gazelles and the elegant cheetah" is playing in Eugene.
In the piece, Curry talks about growing up in Grants Pass, Oregon and about his company, Michael Curry Design, which, "employs 54 full-time artists, currently meeting the collaborative demands of 12 simultaneous worldwide productions."
Big congratulations to alumna Elizabeth Malaska who has been awarded a $25,000 Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant.
