Photos: Tresses & Threads Hair and Fashion Show at Label, 7/28/2014

Posted By on Mon, Jun 30, 2014 at 4:19 PM

The event, presented by Alesia Thomas Foundation, is geared towards honoring and helping folks who have lost their hair due to illnesses. Stylists showcased new hair trends and designers unveiled new fashions that were then modeled on the runway. The survivors catwalk featured women with and without hair. Bianca Golden (a former America's Next Top Model contestant and Project Runway star) co-hosted and starred in the event. Proceeds help with the production of wigs made of human hair and head accessories. (Photos by Mert Jones)

Artists Elizabeth Arzani and Carmen Neely teamed up for a game of exquisite corpse (this method involves passing a work of collaborative art back and forth until its completion) and the result of the project is currently on view at Mona Gallery. Together, through dismembering a collaborative painting, they've created a colorful, mixed-media paper series. (Photos by Brandon Leighton)

Posted By on Fri, May 9, 2014 at 5:13 PM

LaCa celebrated the opening of its new exhibit featuring installations by Jeannine Marchand.
