  • Composer Kubilay Üner offers a “reactive” experience with a live presentation of a new composition made in response to the exhibition Angie Bray: Shhhh. The performance will be interspersed with conversation between Üner and Bray.

  • Kathryn Andrews gets some of her best ideas driving around Los Angeles, where the visual contradictions she sees every day find their way into her art. Andrews, who is originally from Mobile, Alabama, is known for the commonplace objects she fabricates from highly polished and painted metal, into which she incorporates inexpensive or borrowed finds, including rented Hollywood props.

Academy-award winning costume designer Dorothy Jeakins ('36) (1914-1995) began her career as an illustrator at Disney studios after studying at Otis. Her costume sketches are considered works of art. She then did fashion illustration for I. Magnin’s advertising department, where her sketches caught the eye of a studio director. He recommended her as co-designer for Joan of Arc, for which she was awarded the first-ever Oscar® for costume design.

She went on to win Academy Awards for Samson and Delilahand The Night of the Iguana. Among her other credits are South Pacific, The Sound of Music, The Ten Commandments, Finian’s Rainbow, True Grit, Little Big Man, Young Frankenstein, The Postman Always Rings Twice, and The Dead.

One of the most versatile costume designers in the film industry, Jeakins received a Guggenheim grant to the Orient, and had a lifelong interest in ethnic and tribal costumes. In 1967, she became Curator of the Textile and Costume Department at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
