3/20/13: Press Release, Upper Peninsula of Michigan–
(RE) is in the process of organizing our 4th (Re)Design Fashion & Art Show, which is being held March 20th @7pm & is a benefit for the MQT Regional History Center. This event is the largest gathering of artists who use mostly or all recycled materials in their designs and has proven, year after year, to grow and expand and bring people in from all across the UP. I aim to gather the most talented designers and have us all under one roof to show & sell our reclaimed treasures to a full house.
-) We are looking for artists who use recycled or found objects in their art and would like to have a booth at the event. Your name will be included in the program, table is provided, suggested donation fee is $10 only! Set up is 6:00pm at the Museum. All spots are filled but please contact me to be involved next year!
-) We are looking for fiber artists who have a collection of clothing made from recycled materials to be in the fashion show. You will be featured in our press and promotions.
-) There is an open call for entries – anyone across the UP can submit a piece of artwork (preferably fiber but not limited too) in the open design contest, must be in attendance and provide model to walk the piece. Juried winner gets a sweet prize! Applications need to be in before the event and can be picked up at Garden Bouquet & Design.
-) Come one come all and enjoy an evening of Upcycled Art & Fashion!!
