I'm Tim McMath: scenic designer and artist located in New York City. I design regularly for Off- and Off-Off-Broadway stages, as well as theaters around the country. Some of my favorite credits include: Tarzan, The Sensational Josephine Baker, The Triangle Project, META, Cabaret and 20+ productions with Playhouse On The Square, in Memphis, TN (one of my theater homes-away-from-home).
In addition to my work as a designer, I've also created and taught design classes for both undergrad and graduate students, at such institutions as NYU and the City University of New York. My favorite classes include “Design for the Stage,” “Set Design,” and “Introduction to Production and Design.” I am a member of United Scenic Artists Local 829, and both a company member and resident designer for Emerging Artists Theatre.
At various times, I've also been: an assistant wedding designer (working on actual princess weddings!), a museum exhibit planner, a scenic painter and a lighting designer. My sculptural work “Sip In” is held in the permanent collection of The Leslie + Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in New York City. You can see a photo of the work featured in the New York Times here.
I received an MFA in scenic design from the University of Washington’s School of Drama, and a BA from The College of William & Mary. In addition to my own creative work, I often work as an assistant or associate designer on a variety of exciting projects. For the last 6 years, I've worked with David Zinn on a bunch of projects, ranging from Broadway musicals (Fun Home) to large scale operas (Hansel and Gretel) to Pulitzer-Prize winning new plays (The Flick). I've also worked as an assistant to other designers such as Loy Arcenas, Allen Moyer, Klara Zieglerova, Thomas Lynch, Christine Jones, Mimi Lien, and Marsha Ginsberg.
