Cultural Runway Series: Community
Celebrating cultural heritage and featuring fabrics, textiles and clothing from around the globe. In addition to traditional garments, local designers featured on the runway submitted designs and were selected by a panel of judges, winning a $500 stipend. At the show, the audience will vote, and favorites will be awarded an additional $1,000.
This exhibition highlights contemporary artists and current designs created with fiber and textiles. This group show features innovation in the very tangible artforms of cloth, fabric, fiber, thread and yarn. Unique to this artform is the tactile nature, not only in the creation, but also in the experience of the artwork. Fiber art is best experienced not only through sight, but also through contact; fabric, rugs, clothing and upholstery are meant to be touched as well as seen.
Denver Arts & Venues seeks textile artists of all types to submit works for "Woven Together," a dual exhibition at Buell Theatre and McNichols Civic Center Building from November 2023 to January 2024 celebrating knitting, lacework, quilting, embroidery, crochet, cross-stitch and more!
