The Altered Clothing Show

Friday November 13th 7-10 PM

The idea for this show is to recycle unwanted clothing, and to create unique handmade fashions. It will feature clothing that has been transformed into wearable art. Artists from Detroit and across the country will be hanging-up clothing that has been altered in some way. The main clothing item will be t-shirts, but we will be accepting jackets, pants, hoodies etc. The clothes will be decorated with silkscreens, spray painted stencils, embroidery, drawings- or whatever else people dream up. There is room for interpretation. The clothing will be exhibited one night only, November 13th from 7-10. At the opening people will be able to try things on, and buy them on the spot.

We are excited to have this event. As everyone is on a tight budget these days, we see this as an opportunity to find an inexpensive way for people to get new clothes they are excited about. As fashion is an important part of self-expression, this is also an opportunity for people to create their own styles and empower themselves by having their voices represented.

Tuesdays: October 20thand 27th

The other event will be two evenings of creating clothing for the show. On hand will be experts in silkscreen and spray painting stencils on clothing. Join us to make clothes, learn new skills, and share yours with us. This is when you can come and pick through the clothing pile for clothing items you want to work with. These events will be from 7- 10 on Tuesday October 20th, and again on Tuesday October 27th, in conjunction with our Monday Night Arts weekly art making events- now on Tuesdays.

Tuesday November 10th from 6-8

Drop-off deadline for all submissions to the show is Tuesday November 10th from 6-8, or by arrangement. There is an administration fee of $10 for artists to participate in the show. After that 100% of art sales go to the artists. For more information contact us at

Thank you, The Yes Farm
