A Tribute to Tony Walton
Apr 16 — Apr 17, 2022
Tony Walton was an Academy Award–winning costume and production designer who contributed his prodigious talents to stage and screen for fifty years. Born in England, he worked mainly in the U.S., designing Broadway productions and films, several of which—including The Wiz and All That Jazz—were produced at the Museum’s neighboring Kaufman Astoria Studios. MoMI presented a retrospective of Walton’s work for film in 1992, and he was a long time member of the Board of Trustees. In loving memory of Walton, who died last month, this tribute presents two of his most extravagantly designed and costumed films.
