Ball State Art Students and their Scenography for Mascagni's L'amico Fritz


Under the tutelage of Associate Professor of Art Scott G. Anderson, painting students in the Department of Art were immersed in the study and production of operatic stage design for the Ball State Opera Theatre Spring 2010 production of Pietro Mascagni’s L’amico Fritz. The resulting art exhibit, Ball State Art Students and their Scenography for Mascagni's L'amico Fritz, was displayed in the Atrium Gallery 11/2/2010 - 12/3/2010 and digitized for the Digital Media Repository. The digital exhibit is available in the Ball State University Student Art collection. Pictured above is Maquette for Act II by Kathleen Ryan and Andy Hinck.
