Cypress College Art Gallery Presents: Super Makers

2 Mar 2023 - 7 Apr 2023

Two side-by-side images. On the left, Michael Philpot as Pierrot, wearing a costume he designed and made. On the right, Stacia Lang's design for a two-piece “pajama” ensemble. Images of Prince’s band, the New Power Generation, were transferred onto silk charmeuse and then color was hand-painted on. “Prince wore silk suits that we called “pajamas,” because of their seemingly informal and soft structure”

Super Makers allows visitors a behind-the-scenes look at the extraordinary inventiveness and skill that go into creating a front-of-house spectacle. On display is the work of Stacia Lang and Michael Philpot, designers and makers for the fashion, media, and entertainment industries.

View costumes, case studies, photographs, videos, and artifacts from the careers of Lang and Philpot, whose storied credits include Spiderman, Superman, Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Amazing Race, the New York City Ballet, Billy Idol, Trisha Paytas, Dolly Parton, Prince, and more.
