Two UNO Theatre students have been selected to present topics related to their costume design studies at the United States Institute for Theatre Technology.
Sophomore KayLee Taylor will present on the applications of 3D printing for stage costume jewelry.
Senior Melissa Valdez will be sharing her use of propaganda images and other research from the Russian Revolution about her Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival award winning designs for "Animal Farm."
The conference will be held in March in Salt Lake City, Utah. The United States Institute for Theatre Technology is the preeminent professional association of design, production, and technology professionals in the performing arts and entertainment industries.
Only 5-7 students are selected nationally to participate in the Student Leadership Forum at the annual conference. Over 65 percent of the 2,000 anticipated attendees are professionals in entertainment, design, and technology fields.
Congratulations, KayLee and Melissa!
