Susan Hilferty wowed Broadway with Wicked costume designs in 2004, winning the Tony Award for Best Costume Design of a Musical. Something Wicked presents thirty of her exquisite and avant-garde costumes and designs—some from Wicked, some never seen before. Artworks from The Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts and paintings by Judith Godwin, Louise Nevelson, and Grace Hartigan share Hilferty’s spotlight. Explore the process of costume design in “Hilferty’s Studio”—but beware of flying monkeys!
Something Wicked | Susan Hilferty Costumes was fashioned for the McNay Art Museum by R. Scott Blackshire, Ph.D., Curator, The Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts, and Susan Hilferty, Costume Designer; and tailored by Kim Neptune, The Tobin Theatre Arts Fund Assistant Curator, The Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts, with Amanda Whidden, Costume Coordinator, Wicked Worldwide, and Camilla Dely.
This exhibition is a program of The Tobin Theatre Arts Fund.
