Thank you for your interest in participating as an artist in FashionART Santa Cruz 2017, produced by Michaelangelo Gallery. We will be bringing together Santa Cruz and the Bay Area’s most creative designers and artists to showcase their work for the 12th year on the runway at the Civic Auditorium in Santa Cruz, California. Prior shows can be viewed here.

FashionART Santa Cruz showcases one of a kind wearable art pieces, along with established and emerging designers from Santa Cruz and the Bay Area. We are looking for professional, creative people who have the enthusiasm to help create a phenomenal fashion show.

No previous experience is necessary to be considered as a participant in this year’s fashionART Santa Cruz 2017.

Artists may submit up to three designs for consideration. Art pieces and performance should be appropriate for all ages and last no longer than 1.5 minutes. Because of door dimensions wearable art pieces must be able to fit through a 32” wide passageway. We encourage artists to design their entire runway performance, including models, music, hair and make-up.
