3rd annual MN4MN Blank Canvas Project aims to explore the intersection of art, design, fashion and by inviting Minnesota-based designers, artists and models to collaborate in the use of African prints and denim. In many African cultures, colorful prints have long represented oneway in which stories were told. Artists featured include: Arianne Zager, Christina Ridolfi, Christopher-Aaron Deanes, Lissa, Ómò Oba Adetomiwa Gbadebo, Ron Brown, and Kada Goalen. Designers featured are Gabriella Kalema and Raquel Redmond, with hair and makeup by Katie Lietz and Tressie Schneider, and styling by Ethelind Belle. The event is highlighted by a fashion presentation with 10 of Minnesota’s top models produced by Richard Moody to explore how the final art can be incorporated to reflect the diversity of influences in the Twin Cities. Cash bar available. Sponsored by Lightbox Studios. The final art objects will be exhibited and for sale during the opening reception, along with a fashion presentation.
