We’re planning an event that will be a great celebration of the City of the Arts and the fantastically creative entries from over 65 incredibly talented artists!” Ann Kitching, Chair of the Wearable Art Awards Committee, adds, “On behalf of the Port Moody Arts Centre Society I would like to invite everyone to come and see art as you have never seen it before. Hats, bras or full body outfits worn by beautiful dancers. Each performance will be an evening full of fun.”

port moody wearable art awards 2013In honour of Port Moody’s 100th birthday, the Mayor’s Hat Challenge is being held on the day of the awards. Local mayors will be sporting the biggest and best hat, each of which will represent their community. The awards themselves will feature creative and thought-provoking pieces from local, national, and international artists. The 70 garments come from as far away as Germany, Israel and Australia, and as close as Port Moody itself. Dancers will travel down red carpet to live music while displaying each artist’s work, bringing each piece to life.

Tickets to the event are very affordable – $25 for adults and $10 for youth. You can get yours by calling 604.931.2008, or by dropping by the Port Moody Arts Centre. As well, the art work will be on display at the Port Moody Art Center starting on February 23, 2013, where you can see each piece in detail.
