The Juneau Arts & Humanities Council is excited to announce the next phase of Juneau’s favorite celebration of community creativity – the annual Wearable Art Extravaganza! Now in it’s twenty-first year, Wearable Art 2021: Intergalactic will fly into new galaxies as an entire week-long festival in May 2021, with many opportunities for artists, creators, businesses, and community members to engage. Although Juneauites may not be able to connect in-person for the usual runway show in February, the Wearable Art production team created new ways to bring the fantastic creations of Wearable Art Artists straight to your own home to the magic of your home screen, befitting the “Intergalactic” theme: a live-streamed show of the Artists, the MCs and exciting new aspects yet to be unveiled.

A brief overview of Festival events is listed below:

May 14-15 – Wearable Art: “Intergalactic” live-streamed show. Times and tickets TBA.
May 17-21 – Wearable Art Auction, Community Scavenger Hunt, and more
May 21-22 – Wearable Art Living Gallery Exhibit (see the artwork in-person at a socially distanced walk-through opportunity, following all pandemic guidelines). Times and tickets TBA.

Bravo, Team Wearable Art 2020! Y’all amaze me, every single time. I’m honored to be part of the process, and to help you share your art on stage. Artists & models, thank you for your never ending creativity and bravery. Production team, I wouldn’t choose any other people to be locked in a large brown box with for 8 days straight. Juneau, you’re weird and I love you. I hope we keep creating Wearable Art for another 20 years. 💙❤️💜

Wearable Art 2019 is a wrap! This show takes over 9 months to produce, including 6 months of production meetings, several months of set building, 1 month of model rehearsals, 1 week to install in Centennial Hall, 2 performances, and then we take it all down in 1 evening. Most artists begin working on their pieces not long after finishing this year’s show. We had 27 incredible pieces this year, and next year will be 20 years of Wearable Art in Juneau. I get to work with the most amazing team to make this fascinating intersection of visual and performance art happen, and can’t wait to do it all again in 2020! 💙
