Tucson Portraits by Lauri Kaye
June 29- August 9

“Wearing Our Stories” is an exhibit of mixed media drawings sub-dyed onto textiles and meant to be touched, worn, stretched, and used. Creating wearable art is an exciting opportunity to make art more accessible and approachable taking it beyond gallery walls and out onto the streets. Every body every shape and every color changes the aesthetic of the original artwork in a unique and exciting way. For more information about Lauri Kaye, visit her website.
