Since 2007, fig artist Alvin Black III, has worked with the team at Lookingglass theatre company on their annual gala, glassquerade. Working with the Artistic and Development Directors Phil Smith and Jennifer Benniemen, Alvin created visual landscapes for the changing themes, each reflecting the ideas, colors, and inspirations produced from Lookingglass. From the classic map aesthetic of 2008's "Around the World" to the paper marionettes in 2014's "A Celestial Evening" to the moody forest of 2017's "Night in the Forest"- each year produced a unique opportunity and occasionally the fig impact on the look found its way into other elements for the event, such as centerpieces.
