  • Clay Designs Set for “Border Songs”

    September 7, 2011

    Fine Arts Professor Carol Wolfe Clay designed the scenery for “Border Songs,” produced by Book-It Repertory Theatre. This adaptation of Jim Lynch's second novel runs from September 14 to October 9 at the Seattle Center House Theatre.

    “This story is rich with quirky, awkward characters as it explores the divisions that separate us as humans,” said Clay. “I have tried to convey that sense of created borders, along with a respect for nature and art that are essential to the telling of the story.”

    Book-It Theatre presents dramatic adaptations of full-length novels. The theatre received a Mayor’s Arts Award in 2010 and is a member of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Partners in Education Program.

    Clay specializes in scenic design, lighting design, and puppetry. She has designed more than 50 productions at Seattle University since she joined the College of Arts and Sciences faculty in 1986.

    The Department of Fine Arts in the College of Arts and Sciences offers undergraduate degrees in theatre, photography, digital art and design, visual art and art history, and music as well as an MFA in Arts Leadership.
