What’s happening to Wearable Art, you ask?
Maybe you’ve heard the rumors and whispers...maybe you’ve been imagining creating a piece of Wearable Art for the first time...maybe you have an extremely large diamond that you’ve never worn and are yearning to donate to an auction?
Well, we’re here to confirm - WEARABLE ART 2021 IS HAPPENING!
But how will the show go on during a pandemic?
Yes, COVID-19 has made us entirely re-think Wearable Art 2021. But truth be told - the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council, Wearable Art production team, artists, models, and volunteers have been talking about large-scale change for quite a few years. Like many aspects of our lives, Wearable Art 2021 is an opportunity to turn over a new leaf - bringing the best aspects of prior years and evolving to be a true extravaganza: celebrating community creativity, artists, models, businesses, audiences, and more.
Wearable Art 2021 is currently slated to be held mid-May, 2021, and will be a multiday, online performance with beautifully filmed and edited video shorts of Wearable Art pieces, and live introductions by your favorite Juneau MCs. Pandemic-permitting, in-person, masked and socially distanced, viewing of the pieces will also be offered (think: Living Gallery Exhibit)
The logistics of Wearable Art 2021 are still being planned and vetted by our amazing team of staff, artists, and models. We thank you for your patience as we plan for the worst, adapt to the ever-changing COVID-19 landscape, and grow to meet new horizons in this unique visual-art-meets-performance-art event.
Is there still a theme?
You bet there is. Wearable Art 2021’s theme is: INTERGALACTIC. In a world, far far away, all of the artists are beamed onto a hollodeck aboard the Galactica... you get the idea. Get ready to be transported to other planets, stars, and universes. Buckle in (at home), and we’ll page you when it’s showtime.
