CSULB Illustration Professor Robin Richesson illustrates costumes for movie

Posted on December 19, 2018 by School of Art

if_beale_street_could_talk_sketches-publicity-embed_2-2018CSULB Illustration Professor Robin Richesson illustrated the costume designs for the upcoming movie If Beale Street Could Talk. Her works appear in a Hollywood Reporter article this week and coupled with costume designer Caroline Eselin-Schaefer’s words, we see how the costumes do more than just clothe; they also help tell the story. Much of this, as Eselin-Schaefer puts, comes straight from author James Baldwin’s original story: “He gave us the color. He is so descriptive of color of the clothing in the book.”

Congratulations Prof. Richesson!

While there are challenges for all parties involved: woeful budgets, understaffing, aging infrastructure, it makes it even more important that the University as well as  our Art community do what we all  can to help all of us on campus bring our buildings into the 21st Century.
