The theme for this year’s Art Week is the environment, because “Earth without art is just eh….”
The National Art Honors Society has been working for months to prepare for NDP’s first ever Green Carpet Event. On Wednesday, February 15th, as part of Art Week festivities, dozens of models will strut down a runway during lunch mods in original gowns, designed and executed by NDP students. All featured gowns are created strictly with recyclable materials. Please note: This event is by invitation only. And everyone is invited! Will there be dresses of bottle caps? Grocery bags? Newspapers? You’ll have to wait to find out! The NAHS executives have made use of their long-standing connections with the fashion industry and American music contractors, and are able to promise not one, but two guest appearances by a fashion guru and pop icon.
When asked about the Green Carpet Event, model Elizabeth said,“This Green Carpet Event should become an annual tradition at NDP. It is the perfect opportunity for students to use their creativity while being environmentally friendly. I am honored to be able to model a dress made from recycled materials in our first ever Green Carpet runway show.” When asked about the appearance of the dresses, Maddie Wikland and Leeza Faraone, both members of the NAHS, think, “Everyone will be amazed by how wearable and realistic these recycled dresses are.”
But don’t worry; the artistic influences do not conclude at the end of this fashionable event. After the Green Carpet Event, NAHS members will introduce a school-wide mural project and environmentally friendly crafts to the community. Everyone can get involved, vote for their favorite dress, and contribute to the enormous mural project as part of Art Week.
