The Centre for Hmong Arts and Talent’s Community Arts Project presents Yang Mee Yang Moua, who will exhibit her final art at this year’s Fresh Traditions VI Fashion Show, Sep 29, 2012, from 7:30 to 11 p.m. at Minneapolis Central Library, 300 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN 55401. General Admission is $15.
Yang Mee’s project is one part experimental and one part community based-arts. Yang Mee explored using ordinary origami in traditional and modern fashion. This project intends to explain the expression of clothing with paper rather than fabric.
It will challenge the Hmong and non-Hmong communities to apply art to their traditional clothing or daily fashion to express beauty and richness in a creative way. The final products will consist of four outfits made up of origami folded by community members. One final piece will transform a traditional Hmong outfit with hundreds of origami.
CHAT’s Community Arts Project is a meaningful and artistic project designed to promote community and expression. All project activities are meant to foster exemplary and equitable collaborations between the artist and the community.
