Mt. San Jacinto College Announces: The 5th Annual Recycled Art & Fashion Show

Friday, May 13, 2016
6:30 - 10:00 pm
Monte De Oro Winery & Vineyards
35820 Rancho California Rd., Temecula

The 2016 Recycled Art & Fashion Show supports the arts and arts education, raises environmental awareness and promotes wildly creative, eco-friendly alternative art and fashion, hand-crafted from repurposed and discarded materials. Partial proceeds benefit the Mt. San Jacinto College Art Department.

This annual gallery exhibition and runway event, now in its 5th year, was inspired by International Earth Day. It brings together established, professional artists and talented middle school through college-level art students creating a rich range of designers, collaborators and mentors. Art students present with and learn from regional designers and artists in a professional, competitive venue. Work is pre-judged for inclusion by the Event Planning Committee. At the event, a panel of five outside judges will select winners and present awards.

The fashion show models represent a spectrum of ‘real’ body-types. Young and old models, couples, family groups, theatrical and dance performers and South West California pageant titleholders have traversed the runway. Fashion designs are selected based on innovative use of recycled material, expression of humanitarian and ecological statements, craftsmanship, transformation of the model and original design. The gallery show and runway events present highly expressive, unusual and beautiful art and fashion. The Recycled Art & Fashion Show promotes designs inspired by but not limited to; current issues and events, ceremonial costumes and global, ethnic traditions and futuristic sci-fi visions. A respected pillar in the community, and now celebrating over 25 years in the valley, Laskin has played an active role shaping the culture and improving the quality of life in Temecula, donating her time to promote various non-profit groups including events with the Rotary and Elks Clubs, Boys & Girls Clubs, Dorland, Oak Grove, and many other Arts groups, councils and leagues.
