PROJECT PERCEPTION: A Reality Runway Show

Stitchers Fan Club Early Bird Tickets NOW AVAILABLE HERE

This Sunday, February 14, 12:00-2:00!!

Kranzberg Arts Center, 501 N Grand Blvd. in the Grand Center Arts District!

Celebrate Black History Month this year at the Kranzberg Arts Center with the return of Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective’s Perception Isn’t Always Reality. The Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that brings teens and artists together in documenting our community through art, word, video, and music. Perception Isn’t Always Reality is a cultural exchange that explores the dynamics of community in St. Louis through issues of identity, bias, and public perception as related to individual lives.

On February 14th, the Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective will hold a public event and participatory activity with Stitchers Teen Council and featuring guest artist and fashion designer Qristyl Frazier called Project Perception: A Reality Runway Show. MC Mr. K.P. Dennis and Ms. Frazier will guide the audience through a fun exploration of the relationship between perception and clothing through music, game, and makeovers using repurposed clothing from Avalon Exchange to consider biases people may form about individuals based on attire. Come and see Stitchers Teens walk the Runway!

Perception Isn’t Always Reality is a platform for community engagement through an artistic lens, with it the Saint Louis Story Stitchers Artists Collective works to shift perceptions and realities and bring hope to our community. Join us this February 14th at the Kranzberg Arts Center and become part of this vital project.
