Artist Series Exhibition & 10 Year Anniversary Party says
This August we would like to invite you to our first Artist Series exhibition and celebration of our 10 Year Anniversary

This year we commissioned San Francisco artist Rumi Koshino and Seattle artist Frank Correa to create works based on our Fall 2015 and Spring/Summer 2015 Collection. These are the first in a series of art commissions to demonstrate our connection to art and support new artistic production by emerging artists.

To celebrate our 10 years of dedication to sustainable fashion we will be launching an E-Commerce platform on our new website designed by Civilization and built by Mighty Minnow.

Saturday August 8th : Opening Reception / Party
4pm - 9pm
Installation by Rumi Koshino
Photographs by Frank Correa
DJ set Ozma


ABOUT THE ARTIST SERIES:
The program provides a stipend for artists to create a series of work in their chosen medium that incorporates items from our collection. Sample garments the artist selects can be used in any manner they desire. Prairie Underground’s products essentially become artist’s materials. By investing in the production of new art and inviting artists into our design process we hope to create more precious clothing and ultimately a better world.

ABOUT PRAIRIE UNDERGROUND:
Inspired by hand made clothing, uniforms and distressed garments, Prairie Underground produces a populist collection with subtle sensuality, conceived for durability and routine wear. The collection directly supports a diminishing network of sewing contractors in Seattle, Washington and has incorporated sustainable textiles made of hemp and organic cotton in every collection since 2005.
