The American Mural Project (AMP) hosts its fourth annual Art of Work Gala on Saturday, September 28 in its Winsted, Connecticut, mill building, with the theme “Recycled Runway.” In addition to the highlight of the evening—the recycled wearable art runway show—the evening includes cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, light projections, a live band, dance party, and dessert.
The festivities begin at 6pm with a reception in AMP’s mill building, including open bar and heavy hors d’oeuvres, offering attendees an opportunity to view the current progress of the mural installation. The runway show follows soon after and will showcase outfits, designed by individuals or teams, that are created out of at least 75 percent recyclable and/or trash materials. From 8 – 11 pm, the evening continues with the Nekita Waller Band, dance party, light projections by Joe Wheaton, and dessert.
