Reserved Seat Tickets $35 available at

Don’t miss the art FashionArt logo 2014event of the season! More than a runway fashion show, fashionART Santa Cruz is a celebration of art, design and unique pieces of wearable art. When you purchase your reserved seats through the Santa Cruz Education Foundation, 100% of the proceeds will benefit middle and high school visual arts programs in Santa Cruz City Schools thanks to the generosity of the fashionART Santa Cruz team.

Hosted this year by Kim Luke, friend of the Ed FASC.bizcards.2014Foundation, fashionART Santa Cruz is one of the most anticipated events of the year. Created by sculptor Angelo Grova and now in its 9th year, the event has grown from a nearly impromptu show in the parking lot of his Michelangelo Gallery to an annual sell-out of the Civic Auditorium. Designers and artists apply months in advance to be selected for the multimedia runway extravaganza and trunk show. It is an unforgettable evening of spectacular art in motion, not to be missed!
