Closing Reception and Panel
September 20
Doors open at 6pm
Panel starts at 7:30pm
Closing reception ends at 9 pm

The FASHION=ACTIVISM exhibit ends with a closing panel featuring a group of artists whose works and projects speak to pertinent issues of the textile and fashion industry.

Featuring well known artist/fashion activists from all over the U.S., the panel will consider how each artist’s work has made ripple effects throughout the apparel as well as art communities. Join us for a thoughtful discussion on activism seen through a whole other artistic lens.
