Uncommon Thread: Essomenia (Wearable Art)
Where the worlds of contemporary art, fashion, and craft collide, there is Uncommon Thread. Showcasing exceptional design and artistry through wearable art, Uncommon Thread is a national juried art event and competition. It is dedicated to being a unique platform for artists and designers to present their work and giving audiences a one-of-a-kind visual experience with this exciting art form. Baton Rouge Gallery - center for contemporary art (“BRG”) is honored to give this program - originally presented by Culture Candy (2007 - 2015) - new life this Fall with an eye towards the future. Since its founding, Uncommon Thread has been synonymous with innovative presentations of wearable art, working with design professionals, choreographers, dancers, make up artists, stylists, and musicians. Over the years, over 200 works of wearable art from across the country have walked this unconventional runway.
