Description

High Noon Curator Talk
"The Costume Designs of Miles White"
Walter Zvonchenko, Music Division

Miles White [1914-2000] was one of the finest costume designers in 20th century performing arts. He designed for theater, film, circus, ice shows, ballet and cabaret. His theater work included design for the original productions of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! and Carousel, and for Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, High Button Shoes, and Bloomer Girl. His work in film included costume for The Greatest Show on Earth and Around the World in 80 Days. White’s design sketches were themselves highly regarded. Among his collaborators was Oliver Smith many of whose set designs are already in the Library.

NB: The topic for this lecture has been changed since it was originally announced.
