TDF to Honor Mathew LeFebvre, Professor and Designer
University of Minnesota's Department of Theatre Arts and Dance faculty member and director of theatre and undergraduate studies, Mathew LeFebvre, will be honored with the 2012 Theatre Development Fund's Irene Sharaff Award for distinguished costume design. Bestowed upon a designer who has demonstrated unusual promise in the field of costume design, this year's award focuses on designers in education. As both a talented designer and a teacher, LeFebvre has made great contributions "to the theatre, education, and theatre education through dedication to excellence and creativity," according to Stephen Cabral, director of the TDF Costume Collection, who also states "I can think of no one who deserves the recognition more." The award will be presented this spring at a ceremony in New York City. Congratulations on this special honor, Mat!
