By Lincoln Center
Kicking off with a fashion show in the Performance Hall on Friday, October 20, at 7:30 p.m., the 18th ArtWear Biennial brings a fusion of fashion and art to Fort Collins. The Lincoln Center Art Gallery will be transformed into a boutique that opens to the public on Saturday, October 21. Browse and shop for one-of-a-kind handmade wearable garments and accessories designed and made by 56 artists from around the country! You’ll see unique designs and clothing made with interesting fiber arts techniques including shibori dyeing, silk painting, hand-stitching and embroidery, nuno felting, needle felting, and lots more.
A purchase from the ArtWear Sales Boutique not only supports the Lincoln Center Visual Arts Program, it supports the artists. Proceeds from ArtWear Fashion Week have provided significant funding for the Lincoln Center Art Gallery since its start in 1992. When you purchase a garment, 40% of the proceeds will go to support the Lincoln Center Visual Arts Program and 60% will return to the artist. The garments are unique, one-of-a-kind art pieces that represent many hours of work and creativity.
As part of the Biennial, we will also be offering a selection of free lectures and demos, as well as hands-on workshops. Visit LCtix.com for more details.
