Students Strut Their Wearable Art at Annual Exhibition, Oct. 31

Get ready to see the art exhibition that hits the runway when Studio Art Foundations students present the 10th annual Wearable Sculpture Show on Monday, Oct. 31, at 4:30 p.m. in the Commons Great Room. This year more than 50 Studio Art Foundations students will debut wearable art work in a fashion show format.

The campus is invited to attend as students strut their stuff, flex their art-making muscles, and become initiated in what has become a much-anticipated tradition at Arcadia University. The Wearable Sculpture Show, which invokes innovation, humor, a bit of politics, and abundant talent, is a rite of passage for students taking Studio Art Foundations. The art work stems from each student’s investigation of their identity within the theme of each Foundations course.

These projects invite the audience to explore different questions about identity and fashion, such as can you create a plastic personality? What do you stand for? What are you protecting against? Who is your inner superhero?

This year’s artwork represents five different projects directed by Visual and Performing Arts Department faculty members: Chair and Associate Professor Carole Loeffler, Adjunct Professor Maryann Worrell, Exhibition Coordinator Matt Borgen, and Studio Supervisor and Adjunct Professor Krista Profitt.
