Alternate Selves April 23 - June 26, 2010 Entry Deadline: March 1, 2010
Alternate Selves is an exhibition that explores the transformative power of costume. Through theater, annual holiday celebrations (such as Halloween and Mardi Gras), and even contemporary drag shows, costumes have allowed the wearer to reveal a new identity or at times hide from their own.

Artists are encouraged to creatively interpret the theme. 2-D, 3-D, and time-based entries will be considered.
