Schultz and Larson to speak at Kaddatz Gallery

Posted by Judy Korn on Sunday, Nov. 7, 2010

University of Minnesota, Morris professors Ray Schultz, theatre, and Jess Larson, studio art, will serve as guests for the Kaddatz Gallery’s Artist’s Lecture Series on Thursday, November 11, 2010, at 5:30 p.m. The gallery is located at 111 West Lincoln in Fergus Falls. Schultz and Larson will speak about Morris’s eco-friendly production of the Shakespearean classic As You Like It. The event allows a public conversation with Schultz, who served as director, and Larson, who designed the costumes, which are now on exhibit at the Kaddatz Gallery.

“The Artist’s Lecture Series is a great chance to have your questions answered by these professionals” says Gretchen Boyum, Kaddatz Gallery manager. “The costumes and sets were created from recycled and reclaimed materials. This includes the fabulous yellow and orange dress in our window that is made of old CDs, caution tape, and coke bottles. There is a hat and sleeves knitted from the insides of old VHS tapes, a skirt made of neckties, a jacket made of zippers, and another jacket trimmed with bottle caps, buttons, metal grommets, safety pins, and plastic bags, as well as my favorite item, a jacket made entirely of used tea bags! Who knew recycling could be so creative?”
