2015: the tempest & dr. faustus

I was asked to create artwork for lobby exhibitions with the Classical Actors Ensemble, a Shakespearean theatre company in Minneapolis. During their fall and spring seasons, they alternate between two different plays.  In October 2015, they performed The Tempest and Dr. Faustus at the Theatre Garage in uptown Minneapolis. I created ten works for the theatre exhibition, five based on the theme of each play.
