Art • Fashion • Craft, on view from May 1 through June 9, 2023, showcases the work of emerging designers as well as those who have had long and evolving careers in art, fashion, and craft. The physical, cultural, and virtual worlds overlap and sometimes collide in the creation of pieces in this exhibition. Energy and emotion work together to evoke “garments” that incorporate unusual materials. Wearable or static, these artifacts speak to who we are as individuals.
The diverse media these makers utilize and explore brings awareness to the beauty, vision, personal understanding, sensitivity to sustainability, and inclusiveness in the wide realm of fashion. Wearable or static, the works focus on the impact of fashion as art and its relevance to culture and society.
