Czerton Lim teaches Scenic Design and other related topics for the Department of Theatre and Dance. He received his Bachelor of Arts as a double major in Theatre and Biology at the College of William and Mary and his Masters of Fine Arts in Scenic Design at the University of Washington.


Prior to his move to Fredonia, he was a freelance designer working mostly in NYC but has also had his work seen in Richmond, VA, Flint, MI, St. Paul, MN, Seattle, WA, Los Angeles, CA, Washington, DC and as far as Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. He previously taught as an adjunct while serving as a guest artist at Montclair State University. In between all of that, with nothing more than two backpacks, he joined his wife, Jessica, on an eight-month trip around the world.


Mr. Lim is the recipient of the Emerging Artist of Color Fellowship (now the 2050 Fellowship) from New York Theatre Workshop, The Marvin Simms Design Fellowship from the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival Summer Intensive Program, and the Gene Chesley Design Assistant Award from the Utah Shakespearian Festival.
