CALL FOR ART: Farm to Fashion Creative Exhibit

In Farm to Fashion, a creative challenge sponsored by Loudoun Economic Development, The Friends of Franklin Park Arts Center, and the Loudoun Arts Council, we're bringing the arts and agricultural communities together to examine the intersection of “culture” and “agriculture.” People of all ages are invited to create “fashion” artworks for the exhibit individually, or as groups. Create your own proposal to “dress” one of our scarecrow mannequins in some way. You can propose anything — from hats to socks, from gowns to jewelry, using items involved in Loudoun agriculture. Prizes will be awarded for both Student and Adult categories for “Most Creative,” “Most Agricultural,” and “Most Fashionable” projects.

  • DEADLINE EXTENDED to JUNE 30th, 2017.
  • Exhibit will be on display October 1 through 29 at Franklin Park Arts Center. The F2F Farmstyle Reception and Awards Event will be held from 2 pm to 5 pm on Saturday October 28th, and the public is invited. Live music by Fiddlin Dave and Morgan and locally made and grown food and drink will be available.
