PAST EVENT
Fashion Forward Exhibit

August 9, 2020 – August 9, 2020

On Saturday, October 15 The Arts of Life will participate in Chicago Artists Month by presenting Fashion Forward. Fashion Forward will be an exciting art show exhibiting fashion and style-related art and wearable art created by local artists as well as artists that work at Arts of Life.
The term “fashion forward” means creating and wearing items that will soon become very fashionable, influencing others in the process. As Chicago’s most unique art studio – operated by a collaboration of artists with and without disabilities – The Arts of Life is honored to be a source of influence in the celebration of creativity, ability, and diversity among the Chicago artists community.
The Arts of Life will also have a closet sale of affordable used and new clothing. All proceeds benefit their art programming.
At 5 PM in the Kinzie Corridor gallery, along with the wonderful art exhibit, there will be a live skyped catwalk from Project Grow art studio in Portland, OR. Project Grow also has differently abled artists that make up their studio.
At 7 PM, The Arts of Life band will be rocking out in new uniforms designed by designer Audrey Lauck to finish off this celebration of style.
There will be a raffle, drinks, and pretzels from Kim and Scott’s Pretzels. Paper doll creative party favors provided by Art Enables.
Many of the creative collaborations happening in this community event were helped along by the Chicago Calling Arts Festival. Fashion Forward is proud to be part of their festival of collaborations!
This FREE event is open to the public and will take place at the Kinzie Corridor Gallery located at 2010 W. Carroll Ave., Chicago, IL 60612 on
Saturday, October 15th from 4-8pm.
