Vashon’s Wearable Art Party
June 17 @ 8:00 pm – 11:59 pm
Calling all Vashionistas
Strut the catwalk.
See and Be Seen.
We’re throwing an old-school, no-holds-barred, go-for-it-big-time blow-out Art Party, a Parisian Beaux-Arts Ball inspired celebration of collective creativity where everyone shows up as art.
This is not prêt-a-porter: it is Beaux Arts-a-Porte! No norms, all forms: sculpture, painting, architecture, textile arts, multi media, found objects, inflatable, a dab of paint. If it is worn it is wearable.
You are invited to be your boldest self, flaunt the boundaries of safe and acceptable, raise eyebrows, and boldly go over the edge. Strut, dance, perform. Push it, we dare you. What do you have lurking inside?
Whether you create your own wearable art or find a co-conspirator to conjure your look, whether your masterpiece comes together in weeks or just a few precious days, this is our collective moment to shrug off the humdrum and push back against “meek”, “safe” and “vanilla”.
This will be a ticketed public party and to be clear, since this extraordinary party works best when everyone plays along, ALL guests will be strongly encouraged to show up “presenting” their work. AND, a guest DJ will mix the music for a night of dancing, revelry and taking in the pageantry.
We are hoping to inspire the wild self-expressive artist in everyone! It will be a night of seeing and being seen. So let’s get together and make a wild ruckus!
Please join us! We invite you to find the payment that feels right. This is an Open Door* event.
