UCD Students at the FAMSF
UCD Design students inspired by works in the FAMSF
In light of Dr. James Housefield’s talk on Friday, April 24, 2015, at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, he shared these photographs featuring UCD students at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor (Spring 2014, Design 198 class).
Shreya Carey, a design student at the time, organized a directed group study class, DES 198: Historical Costume Design and Construction (Europe) which Prof. Housefield co-supervised. Department of Design colleague, Adele Zhang, also co-directed this group of students in Spring 2014.
These photographs showcase the DES 198 students modeling the clothing they designed and sewed, based on historical examples from paintings in the FAMSF collections.
Prof. Housefield would also like to acknowledge other “students who contributed to the phenomenal results of the DES 198 class”: Nicole Burkholder, Luis Zepeda, Eve Wanetick, Jenny Chen, Rumiko Adame, Dennis Liu, Natalie Lam, Jasmine Yang, and Kara Chin for her photographic work throughout the class.
Prof. Housefield would like to give a special thank-you to Renee Baldocchi and Cynthia Inaba at the FAMSF for facilitating the students’ engagement with the works, and their final photo shoot. Renee is an alumna of UC Davis.
