    Academy of Music Theatre

    Working as a member of the Clarity team, I was fortunate to play a part in developing the Academy of Music’s first-ever capital campaign. The turn-of-the-century theater, which anchors the historic district of downtown Northampton, MA, was sorely in need of new seats, new paint, and new gilding. This is one of a series of posters aimed at educating the public about the Academy’s storied history and the amazing variety of performers and personalities who have taken its stage. Others paired Houdini and Miss Trans New England, and Rudolph Valentino and Dave Brubeck. The capital campaign exceeded its goal, and the renovations brought the Academy back to its full grandeur.
