Join us on the first Friday evening of each month for an ever-changing mix of art, music, and mingling. MIX is an 18 and over event.

MIX: Couture
Friday, November 7, 2014, 5:00–9:00 p.m.

Experience a runway show featuring surrealist-inspired designs as you meet your friends, grab a drink, and dive into the wild world of the subconscious. In celebration of the exhibition Forbidden Games: Surrealist and Modernist Photography, The David Raymond Collection, 20 finalists from CMA's Made Surreal fashion design competition will present their inner-mind-revealing couture for the MIX crowd and for a special panel of judges including: 

  • David Raymond, art collector and filmmaker
  • Doris Raymond, vintage clothing guru and owner of Los Angeles vintage store The Way We Wore (featured in the Smithsonian Channel hit "L.A. Frock Stars")
  • Jean Drusedow, director of the Kent State University Museum
  • Barbara Tannenbaum, curator of photography at the Cleveland Museum of Art

Let the vintage photography of Forbidden Games be your fashion inspiration and come dressed in your favorite black and white.


Every month MIX features different art projects, demonstrations, and performances. Artists, crafters, poets, writers, and generally creative folks—got a great idea for a project? Make it happen at MIX!
