Canal monsters are coming to STRUTT

Cargo van full of monsters.

Cargo van full of monsters.

STRUTT, the epic wearable art extravaganza, is next Saturday, October 16. Christine and I worked for weeks on a walking tableau called “It Came From the Welland Canal”. The project grew so large we had to rent a cargo van to transport it to St. Catharines.

Part monster movie, part-environmental allegory, our project was inspired by Spanish fiestas’ gigantes y cabezudos. Our creations will share the custom-built runway with dozens of other wearable art delights, in an enormous factory building, accompanied by a live performance by music legends The Sadies. STRUTT is part fashion show, part loft party, all spectacle. You should definitely get a ticket.
