St. George Art Museum seeks fashionistas for design competitionThe St. George Art Museum invites artists, art teachers, students, and other creative individuals to join in creating original garments out of natural materials and walking the runway in a design competition. Teams of up to five members each will compete for prizes in a fashion show on Saturday, Nov. 5, in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the National Parks System.

The rules are simple. Garments must be constructed ahead of time to be ready to display at the fashion show. Garments may not be made from commercial patterns or fabrics and must be made predominantly of natural materials or fibers such as leaves, twigs, flowers, cotton, straw, hay, or other natural materials crafted into wearable art.

The deadline for entering the competition is Oct. 31. Prospective contestants should email the St. George Art Museum at with team information including the school or organization represented, the team name, and the complete names of each team member along with his or her age and school, if applicable. The name of the individual who will model the garment, contact information for the teacher or team leader, and a brief description of the garment should also be included.

The St. George Art Museum is open Mondays–Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 47 E 200 N. More information is available by calling (435) 627-4525.
