Theater As Art: The Costume Sketches of Harvey Jurik

Theater as Art: The Costume Sketches of Harvey Jurik exhibit features costume sketches drawn by Professor Emeritus of Theatre Harvey Jurik between 1972 and 1992. University Archives then matched sketches with photographs from the actual productions, comparing what Professor Jurik imagined the costumes would look like against what actually was created by students.

We invite you to visit the physical exhibit and the actual sketches in University Archives on Miller Center’s 3rd floor. The exhibit will be up for the next year.

Background:

“In 1942 and 1943, students at the University of Munich (Bavaria, Germany) led an underground campaign calling for the German people to actively resist the policies, actions, and especially the acts of aggression of the Nazi government. Under the name of ‘The White Rose,’ group members created mimeographed leaflets, leaving them in public spaces and mailing copies to German citizens whom they felt might respond to their message of peaceful resistance. At night, the students painted slogans against the Nazi regime in a graffiti campaign around the city. Eventually the movement expanded to other German cities, including Hamburg, Berlin, and Vienna.

On Feb. 18, 1943, White Rose members Hans and Sophie Scholl were arrested by the Gestapo after distributing the leaflets in the University of Munich Atrium. Along with another member, Christoph Probst, a married father of three children, the Scholls were tried, condemned to death, and executed by guillotine on Feb. 22. Many White Rose members stood trial and faced execution or imprisonment in the months to follow.

The last leaflet of the White Rose was smuggled out of Germany and ultimately air-dropped in large quantities over the country by Allied Forces.

Now more than 70 years later, the White Rose is one of the most widely known resistance groups in German history. It has been the subject of several books and films. The White Rose Exhibit commemorates the bravery and integrity of a group of students in the face of political evil and popular indifference.”
