Wearable Art registrations due Monday, Dec. 16

Artist registrations for the 14th annual Wearable Art Extravaganza are due on Monday, Dec. 16.


Wearable art is simply art that is designed to be worn on the human body. It can incorporate elements of sculpture, painting, weaving, welding, sewing, fusing, or any other art form.

The theme for this year’s runway show is “Technicolor.” However, using the theme is not mandatory.

This year’s show is scheduled for Feb. 8 and 9 at Centennial Hall. The director will be Perseverance Theatre’s Shona Strauser, who is also co-host for the evening, along with Andy Kline. Set design and construction will be created by Bauer/Clifton Interiors and Northwind Architects, and video production is by Patty Kalbrener.

Wearable Art tickets are now on sale to members of Juneau Arts & Humanities Council, and will go on sale to the general public on Jan. 15. Ticket proceeds from this event benefit the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council Scholarship Programs, Individual Artist Grants and help underwrite operations of the Juneau Arts & Culture Center.
