Peoria Riverfront Museum presents
August 1 through November 7, 2022
LEARNING FASHION DESIGN from CONCEPT to CREATION to CATWALK!
Inspired by the ten prints of the “Andy Warhol: Endangered Species” exhibition, "Project Fashion Show,” a FREE program for high school students, supported by Art Bridges, connects the dots (and spots, and stripes!) between art and awareness about wildlife conservation.
In collaboration with local artists Lily Scalfi, Aareon Boyd, the Peoria Zoo and Wildlife Prairie Park wildlife experts, 10 teams of students grades 9-12 will compete for the ultimate prize and runway reveal!
For more information on this event, contact Everley Davis, program director & Educator & Student Engagement Coordinator: 309.863.3034
We thank Art Bridges for generously supporting this program!
