Fresno, CA -
is THE primary fundraising event for the Fresno Art Museum. The centerpiece of this fun-filled evening is a high-end fashion show of artist-designed garments inspired by famous artists and created from what most people regard as trash and discards. In past years
has been held in a tent at the Fresno Art Museum, but due to its wild popularity we have outgrown the tent and this year's
event will be in a whole new location: The SIGNATURE FLIGHT SUPPORT HANGAR near the Fresno Yosemite International Airport at
3050 North Winery Avenue
(at Shields) in Fresno.
Roseanne Guaglianone, the original creator of
TRASHIQUE®, returns with Choreographer David Bonetto as Co-Artistic Directors, Hair Stylist Eric Gomez, and Make-Up Artist Debra Erven. The hosts for the night are StageWorks Fresno's Joel Abels and FAM's Executive Director and Chief Curator Michele Ellis Pracy. Forty-seven local artists will be creating over 50 garments for the models that will grace the runway. This hour-long musical and multimedia production is a tour-de-force fashion event that represents the best of the creative energies of Fresno. The artist-designed garments are inspired by the following art world luminaries: Joan Brown, Marcel Duchamp, Charles & Ray Eames, Edward Hopper, Howard Hodgkin, Paul Klee, René Lalique, Michelangelo, Claude Monet, Claes Oldenburg, Diego Rivera, and Cindy Sherman.
