Christine Barnes - Disney Imagineer, ETC Alum, Visit with IDeATe Students

Wednesday, May 3rd, 4:30 p.m. - IDeATe Studio A (HL 106B)

Christine Barnes Photo (3).jpgChristine Barnes, Theme Park Set Decorator and Artificial Foliage Designer, always strives to create unique and engaging ways for people to experience the magical art of storytelling. These days her magic is more colorful, she specializes in storytelling with artificial foliage for major theme parks around the world. She graduated from Carnegie Mellon's Entertainment Technology Center in 2011 with a Masters of Entertainment Technology and was honored with the Tornado award. Before Carnegie Mellon, Christine was Properties Supervisor at Rutgers University, where she taught some very bright men and women the finer points of props and set decorating for the theatre, while spending an extraordinary amount of time looking for the perfect authentic 1970s English kitchen sink. Christine has worked on various on and off Broadway shows including Hal Holbrook's Mark Twain Tonight!!, but her favorite will always be Forever Plaid. Beyond the bright lights of Broadway there were summers of Shakespeare in Georgia and songs of friendship and fun at the Wayside Theatre in Virginia.  A beautiful Aria will always make her heart sing with memories of her time as the Properties Coordinator for the Florida Grand Opera in Miami. Christine has been bringing magic to the stage since she was a little girl and is not only a lifetime Girl Scout but a member of the Brotherhood of Magicians.
