Meet Costume Designer Susan Tsu

Established Artist winner of the 2017 Carol R. Brown Creative Achievement Award

Congratulations to costume designer Susan Tsu, the winner of this year’s established artist Carol R. Brown Creative Achievement Award. This video profile of Susan and her work debuted at the Dec. 4 public celebration at the August Wilson Center for African American Culture. The awards recognize the works and achievements of one established artist and one emerging artist and come with a $15,000 award for each, thanks to a shared commitment to the arts by The Pittsburgh Foundation and The Heinz Endowments. Candidates were nominated by artists and regional leaders in the arts, and were chosen by an independent panel of artists who reviewed applications and work samples.
