When students began ignoring dramaturgical lobby displays at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, student dramaturg Aria Velz decided to take a new approach. She created a series of dramaturgically-driven installation art pieces that not only conveyed important information but also engaged the audience in the feeling of the production as soon as they stepped foot in the lobby. Examples of Velz's work on "Spring Awakening" and "Trojan Women: A Love Story" are below. -Amy Freeman and Jacqueline Goldfinger, rVPs, Philly Metro Region
