Battle Cabin Fever with Art

I know that many of us are already sick of winter and we’re only about a third of the way through it!!!! YIKES!  If you’d like to beat the heck out of cabin fever and wanna be inspired, collect and enjoy, here are some events happening this weekend in the Central Ohio area!

fashion Schau

SERVitecture is hosting the 3rd Annual Fashion Schau Friday, January 24th in Knowlton Hall’s Center Space at 7:00pm. The concept for the Schau (German for “show”) stems from the Bauhaus costume designs and Beaux Arts Balls of the early twentieth century. Similar to those events, SERVitecture created the Schau around the idea of rethinking fashion architecturally. At the KSA, students are constantly experimenting with new and interesting materials, as well as repurposing everyday objects, in their design projects. KSA students and other designers on campus will showcase their designed outfits to be judged by KSA faculty.Student designers were asked to creatively incorporate the theme centered around the silhouette in comparison to the designs overall expressive form. They will also be judged based on economic design solutions, creativity, and production.The Fashion Schau is the major fundraiser for SERVitecture, generating $1500 over the last two years, which were donated to the charitable organization, Dress for Success Columbus. Dress for Success is a national organization that helps empower women in their communities to become more self-sufficient through access to professional attire, career and development courses, and informational sessions.Please come out to see a fantastic show, with music and food, and support a great cause!Pre-Show tickets will be available at the front office desk in Knowlton Hall of OSU for $5

Step right up, step right up, step right up! Everyone’s a winner, bargains galore!Join us on Saturday January, 25 from 7-10pm at What the Rock?! for this special show closing of the latest installment in our local artist window display series.Paul Bearer is a mad alchemist. For the past few years he has been prodigiously churning out a veritable flotilla of quixotic little beasties he has dubbed CARNY CRITTERS. Every CC is a 1 of a kind creation fused from thrift store detritus and flea market flotsam and jetsam. A commonality they share is that they are whimsically malevolent and wholly captivating. There are so many varieties it’s challenging to catalogue the lot. Truly, they must be seen to be believed, and once eyeballed, you will wanna “adopt” your very own.Be sure to check out Bearer’s Weird World Creations & Carny Critters!
