ABOUT THIS EVENT
The Museum of Ventura County announces the return of its Wearable Art Fashion Show and has opened its call for entries, with an entry deadline of March 1. “Wearing Our Stories: Rising from the Ashes” focuses on stitching together the stories of courage amid destruction and mending the devastation left behind by the Thomas Fire. The challenge for artists, artisans, and community members is to tell their stories through an article of clothing or accessories designed for this wearable art show. The focus of this show is how we begin sifting through the ashes to find some treasure to mend our spirit and give us the strength to move forward and rebuild.
There is a $15 entry fee or $20 for two entries. One to three photos of your design will be accepted with each entry. If your piece is not complete, a description and/or sketch of your design is acceptable, or a description and photo of your design in progress. Submissions can be sent by mail or email.
