Through sketches, masks and prosthetics, LIFEFORMS: The
Makeup Art of Michael Westmore, explores this legendary makeup
artist’s process of creating singular film and television characters
and creatures. This is the first exhibition to display the designs of
Westmore (BA 1961, Art History) through the development of
some of science fiction’s most iconic characters, including Data,
Worf and the Borg species. This Oscar and Emmy award-winner
visually explodes the boundaries of the human form with designs
for a diverse, multicultural, multispecies universe, providing an
entertaining and meaningful exploration of the intricacies of human
nature. Currently, Westmore encourages the next generation of
makeup artists as a featured guest star on the popular television
show, Face Off. Curated by Jessica Archer, Graduate Student and
Rebecca Harlow, Curatorial Assistant.
