Every other year the IIDA (International Interior Design Association) Indiana Chapter holds their Avant Garb Fashion Show in Indianapolis, but this is not any ordinary fashion show. Teams for the event are made up of partnerships between manufacturers and either one company or employees from multiple companies in both Fort Wayne and Indianapolis. Each team of six or less members have the goal to create a fashion garment using their manufacturers’ unique and upcycled materials, which means that there are outfits constructed out of anything from rubber base to wallcovering.
Every year, America SCORES Chicago puts together an art show where artists get to choose a poem written by America SCORES’ students and turn it into an original works of art. All the works of art are displayed at one of the local galleries where the public has an opportunity to enjoy an amazing night spent at The Inspired Art Gallery night, while supporting the opportunity for more students to participate in their after school program. This event provides a great opportunity for both the artists and the students to connect with each other on a different level and support each others’ talents.
