As part of the Festival of the Arts, FSU Drawn to Art Organization will be hosting “Tableau Vivant: Bringing A Masterpiece to Life” on Thursday, February 15th at 7:00pm in the University Center First Floor Atrium.
French for “living picture,” Tableau Vivant is a style of artistic presentation that most often describes a group of costumed actors who pose to imitate a work of art. Dating back as early as medieval times, the most recent heyday of the Tableau Vivant was the late 19th to early 20th centuries, when it was quite popular in the United States. Examples of Tableau Vivant can be found at venues like the Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach, CA and on TV shows like the Gilmore Girls. After exploring the history of the art form, the Ferris student group will present their own interpretation of a famous work of art.
