Spring Student Night and Fashion Show

Spencer Museum of Art

Spring Student Night features free food, live and DJ music, an artist’s demonstration, and a fashion show. Read our event preview of this and the evening's other fashion show.

“Art on the Green” is inspired by the Spencer’s ecology-themed exhibitions, and is presented in conjunction with the University of Kansas’ “From Blue to Green: Conserve KU” month. The event is free and open to the public.

All activities for the evening will be eco-friendly. Students can decorate free organic tote bags with nature stencils while supplies last, and enjoy live music outdoors on the Spencer’s front lawn. SMA artist-in-residence Wang Tiande of China will demonstrate water calligraphy outside. There also will be an exhibition of student art in the main entry area.

At 7 p.m. a sustainable fashion show will take place in the Central Court. The runway will feature work from student and faculty designers, plus several local vendors, including Magic Carpet Traveler, Eco Boutique, and White Chocolate.

Visitors can also enter to win raffle prizes, including gift certificates to local shops and restaurants, and items donated from designers featured in the fashion show. Free refreshments will also be provided thanks to generous donations from Local Burger, the Community Mercantile, and Great Harvest Bread Company.

Museum galleries will also be open for students to view the exhibitions Climate Change at the Poles, Trees & Other Ramifications: Branches in Nature and Culture, and A Tradition Redefined: Modern and Contemporary Chinese Ink Paintings from the Chu-tsing Li Collection, 1950-2000.
