The Regional Arts Commission Presents
ST. LOUIS (September 8, 2015) – The Regional Arts Commission (RAC) presents Pants!, an exhibition curated by Nina Ganci, owner of SKIF International. As a garment, pants are often over-looked, yet they are essential and provide a quiet anchor to one’s wardrobe. The exhibition Pants! brings this essential garment front and center as an exploration of the many creative St. Louis personalities that make up SKIF’s circle of friends and their combined abilities. This exhibition is in conjunction with Innovations in Textiles 10, a regional collaborative event celebrating fiber art. Visit craftalliance.org or racstl.org for more information.
