Gallery Show at Atomic Todd, Las Vegas NV
“99¢ Only Dress Shop”
April 30- May 24 at the Las Vegas art gallery:
Atomic Todd: 1221 Main Street, Las Vegas, NV
Continuing my exploration of environmental dress making, I am turning to local dollar stores in the urban environment of downtown Las Vegas. I will be creating a “dress shop” entirely out of items purchased at various 99¢ Only stores. I will be working in my “artistic sweat shop” during the run of the exhibit, making dresses out of items like sponges, whiffle balls and easter eggs. This show will be completely interactive and open to the public. I invite everyone to come visit, try on the artwork, or even help create it!
