Designs on Film: A Century of Hollywood Art Direction by Cathy Whitlock
Author and design journalist Cathy Whitlock will give a fascinating lecture by paying tribute to the unsung heroes of the movie business: production designers, art directors, and set decorators. While their work is often underappreciated, these “architects of illusion” work closely with the director and cinematographer to visualize and create believable, self-contained worlds within each film. As part of OKCMOA’s annual Oscar Tune-Up program, her lecture will also address this year’s Oscar race for Art Direction.
Cathy Whitlock’s career as a book author, magazine writer, design marketer, lecturer and interior designer spans many directions. Designs on Film: A Century of Hollywood Art Direction (Harper Collins, November, 2010), represents the marriage of her two passions – design and the cinema. She is also the author of the book re-de-sign (Fairchild Books, 2009), a contributing writer for Traditional Home magazine and the Huffington Post, and features editor for Array magazine. Her magazine work also appears in Veranda, Architectural Digest, Capitol File, American Airlines Celebrated Living, the Hollywood Reporter, and internationally for Glamour UK and Four Seasons hotel magazines where she specializes in celebrity profiles, design, film, and lifestyle articles. She also writes the blog Cinema Style  that chronicles trends and inspiration on film and reaches seventy countries.
