Go behind the scenes at Pageant of the Masters with CSA Western Region

The Costume Society of America, Western region is adding a bonus event for 2013 (and this is your one place to find out about it!) The Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach is  “ninety minutes of ‘living pictures’ – incredibly faithful art re-creations of classical and contemporary works with real people posing to look exactly like their counterparts in the original pieces.”

Join us behind the scenes at Pageant of the Masters on August 18

Celebrating it’s 80th anniversary, Diane Challis Davy, director of the Pageant of the Masters, notes “We’ll have Vermeer, Gainsborough, Michelangelo, Gerome, Seurat, Rodin, Norman Rockwell. Designers for both stage and screen look to paintings and sculpture for historical information and inspiration. I thought it would be a new twist for the Pageant to take a look back at the work of the Masters that inspired great works of cinema.” And, of course, the show will once again conclude with its traditional finale, Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper.”

To be held on August 18, those who register for the CSA program will be treated to:

  • a talk by Pageant Costume and Headpiece Director and CSA Member, Mary LaVenture
  • a performance of The Big Picture (a salute to classic art that inspired legendary filmmakers)
  • a post-performance backstage tour
