As part of the opening of Cheryl Donegan’s solo exhibition GRLZ + VEILS, tonight’s fashion presentation, GODZ Grlz, premieres a new fashion line that the artist developed during her time as the AAM’s 2017–18 Gabriela and Ramiro Garza Distinguished Artist in Residence. The imagery on the garments originates from photographs that Donegan took of graffiti scratching on air conditioners—reworked and reimagined for apparel. In addition to the couture pieces featured this evening, a line of ready-to-wear items is available through the AAM Shop. New York–based artist Alix Pearlstein directed and choreographed the presentation, which features models from the Roaring Fork Valley.
