MSJC is pleased to announce its 7th Recycled Art and Fashion Show!  This year’s theme is Our Resilient Future: Diversity and Ecology.  We are making a public call for MSJC students and community artists to design wearable art using primarily recycled or repurposed materials.  Participants are encouraged to create a more individualized theme for their fashion within the context of the larger theme.  The pandemic requires that we shift this historically live event to a virtual video format.  Cash awards — only available to current MSJC students — will be presented by a panel of judges on Earth Day, April 22, 2021.

Prize Awards for MSJC Students:    
Most Original Design - $200 
Innovative Use of Materials - $200 
Most Expressive Movement - $200 
Celebrating Diversity – $200 
Ecological Awareness – $200 

Prize for non-students:
Community Activist (courtesy of Temecula Habitat for Humanity) - $250

The Recycled Art & Fashion show was initially envisioned by Jane Laskin, Community Activist/Organizer. She collaborated with art professor Eileen Doktorski to present MSJC student designs at its inaugural Temecula event on April 12, 2012. This year’s virtual event is led by MSJC faculty John Knuth, Julie Freeman and Eileen Doktorski with support from MSJC’s Diversity Committee, the MSJC Foundation and community volunteers.
