Educators explore, unwind, and rewind with the McNay’s first-ever fashion and video art exhibition, Fashion Nirvana: Runway to Everyday. Artists and designers capitalized on the technological advances of the 1990s to make unforgettable contributions to pop culture that still resonate today. Following a keynote address by the exhibition curator, tour the exhibition, and attend 90s-inspired workshops. Catered dinner of Italian classics provided by Julian’s. 

Workshop Choices:

Upcycled Fashion

Jessica Cardenas, Art Teacher, Madison High School

Transform your blank canvas into a work of wearable art. Bring an item of clothing that needs TLC and embellish using top tips for painting on textiles. Heavy-duty fabrics like canvas and denim recommended. Hats, backpacks, and canvas totes are also options.

Make It Work

Larissa Lyons, Assistant Director of Theatre, Judson High School

Get up close and personal with the grunge to glam looks featured in Fashion Nirvana as you recreate iconic 90s fashion with found materials. Make it work (together) in this timed team challenge that culminates in (not) serious runway walk-off.
