Window Watching: Wearable Art Series Reveal
June 5, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Come celebrate the opening of the second in the series of the Cleveland Street Wearable Art Exhibit. This an opportunity to not only meet but engage with the artists, who will speak about their exhibit during a guided tour.
The latest “wearable art” exhibits showcasing the work of local artists began in January 2021 when the city of Clearwater’s Community Redevelopment Agency commissioned artists to help bring vacant storefronts in Downtown Clearwater to life throughout the year.
The first phase of the program was a successful initiative to address blight and vacancy in downtown, using artists to provide a unique and distinctive experience for visitors in Downtown Clearwater. The new exhibits are featured in six storefronts in the heart of Downtown Clearwater on the 500 and 600 blocks of Cleveland Street.
Funded by the CRA and working with property owners to identify sites downtown, local artist and business owner Lina Teixeira has sourced new artists whose work will be featured for the last six months of 2021.
The latest exhibit will feature the work of artists Demeree Barth, Adrianne Butler, Mark Byrne, Judy Ginader, Ungala Grace, Terri Gray, Bobbi Halverson, Michael Montini, and Lina Teixeira (previous exhibit artists included Julian Hartog, Ivanka Ska, Frank Strunk III, Teixeira, and Beth Warmath). The art exhibits will include masks, headpieces, shoes, and garments, all made using various wearable materials such as paper, metal, toys foam, flowers, and even pasta.
