Wearable Arts 2021 "Intergalactic"
The Juneau Arts & Humanities Council is excited to announce the next phase of Juneau’s favorite celebration of community creativity - the annual Wearable Art Extravaganza! Now in it’s twenty-first year, Wearable Art 2021: Intergalactic will fly into new galaxies as an entire week-long festival in May 2021, with many opportunities for artists, creators, businesses, and community members to engage. Although Juneauites may not be able to connect in-person for the usual runway show in February, the Wearable Art production team created new ways to bring the fantastic creations of Wearable Art Artists straight to your own home to the magic of your home screen, befitting the “Intergalactic” theme: a live-streamed show of the Artists, the MCs and exciting new aspects yet to be unveiled.
