Believe the Impossible · Wearable Glass in Wonderland
At the stroke of noon on January 22, glass art at WMODA will come to life as we launch the United Nations International Year of Glass and celebrate Fort Lauderdale Art & Design Week. Iconic characters from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll will show off their zany costumes in a fashion show featuring wearable glass art. Alice will follow the White Rabbit down the rabbit hole and through the looking glass to the Mad Hatter’s tea party. On her way, she will encounter some of the bizarre residents of Wonderland including the formidable Queen of Hearts, the Duchess, and the grinning Cheshire Cat presented by fashion designer and glass artist, Chelsea Rousso. It gets “curiouser and curiouser” as Chelsea is also working with fine art photographer, Suzanne Barton, to reimagine Alice’s impossible dreamscape underwater. Highlights of their unbelievable collaboration will be exhibited as part of this special event. Don’t be late for this very important date!
Wearable Glass in Wonderland was made possible with support from the Broward County Cultural Division and Jeffrey Michaels Design. Admission to WMODA is free that day. Limited pre-reserved seats for the fashion show at 12 noon on January 22 are now available for a $10 donation to the museum. Donations benefit the educational programs at WMODA, a 501c3 not-for-profit museum.
