Legendary theatre designer Ming Cho Lee died in October of 2020 at the age of 90. Known for his pioneering approach to set design and for introducing new textures to the designer’s tool kit such as scaffolding and industrial materials, Lee won a Tony Award in 1983 for his high-altitude sets in K2 and influenced generations of students teaching at Yale School of Drama for nearly fifty years (1969–2017). Collector and life-long friend, Robert L. B Tobin championed Lee and collected his designs for ballet, theatre, and opera, within the Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts. In 2000, Ming Cho Lee offered the first Tobin Distinguished Lecture at the McNay. Join for a virtual tribute conversation celebrating Ming Cho Lee with a panel of his former students and colleagues.
