Open Artist Studio: Clothing as Protest

  • January 15, 2024
  • 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Space: Oyster Classroom


From the Civil Rights Movement to Black Lives Matter, clothing has long served as a foundation for protest. Children will look at design examples by Jae Jerrell of artist collective AfricOBRA and Kerby Jean-Raymond, founder of fashion brand Pyer Moss, as they discuss how clothing can reflect memories, culture, and identity. They’ll put their drawing skills to use as they create fashion sketches that bring awareness to today’s top issues, then recreate their designs using upcycled fabric and other materials.
