Recently opened at The Lincoln Center Art Gallery, Bodies of Work: The Hixon ArtWear Collection shares a glimpse into The Lincoln Center’s ArtWear experience. The exhibit will be open until September 4.
Gary and Carol Ann Hixon (shown above) inspired and created the vision for ArtWear Fashion Week, which has evolved during its almost 30-year history into the ArtWear Biennial. ArtWear is the fundraiser for The Lincoln Center Visual Arts Program.
Over almost 30 years as the creative force of ArtWear, the Hixons have acquired, and created, a truly unique collection of wearable art. The ArtWear Biennial is not happening this year due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic; however, The Lincoln Center is excited to share its history through the Hixon’s stunning wearable art collection and the history of the ArtWear posters.
In addition to being viewable by those attending select ticketed or pre-scheduled events, The Lincoln Center Art Gallery is currently open for the following public viewing days:
Wednesday, August 11, 18 and 25 - Noon to 6 p.m.
Sunday, August 8 - Noon to 6 p.m.
