WORLD BEAT: The 29th Annual Wearable Art Show
February 5-7, 2015 * Ted Ferry Civic Center
KETCHIKAN – THE ORIGINAL WEARABLE ART SHOW!
Ketchikan’s Wearable Art Show is the original runway performance that has become a state- and world-wide phenomenon! Artists in the Ketchikan community and beyond create original wearable wonders out of duct tape, foam, sequins, trash bags, wood, milk jugs…you get the idea… and LOTS of glue! The artwork comes alive modeled on the runway to music- fashion, sculpture, engineering, theatrics, dance and music in one magical performance. It’s a spectacle that defies description, and an unforgettable experience!
GET YOUR TICKETS FOR 2015!
Open seating tickets to the 2015 Wearable Art Show will be available at the 2014 Winter Arts Faire held annually the weekend of Thanksgiving.
