Abstract (Summary)

This project report examines the artist's search for truth within their art as realized by the costume designs in CalRep's world premier of And the War Came. The production was written by California State University, Long Beach Theatre Department Graduate Students as a tribute to the Army National Guard and performed at The Long Beach National Guard Armory, April 24-May 9, 2009.

I intend to demonstrate my understanding of the process of finding a universal truth in art by the search for truth in general, the transformation from reality to intentional design, and in so doing discovering the emotion and imagery in the piece in order to convey to the audience a subtle, yet powerful connection to the characters in the play.
