SDVAN and FOCUS have embarked on a project to enliven the San Diego art scene by cross pollinating the fashion and art worlds. They have created teams consisting of an artist, a fashion designer, a teacher and a documenter.  The collaborations will be showcased throughout April and May of 2011. Finale events will include a VIP fashion show, a series of independent exhibitions for each of the teams, and a group show, which will present highlights of each team at one venue.

Elevation at Space4Art: This recreation of five elements: ash, mud, seed, water and crystal brings a fresh life from the old through reinventing, repurposing and recycling in a mixed media adventure. Team Elevation is working towards a new beginning of life without defect, pure without blemish.

Elevation Fringe Event From Darkness, Comes Light

May 17 – 28, 2011

A juried exhibition of work created by the artists of Space 4 Art, which responds to the theme of rebirth. The art will make reference to an alternate existence in a post-apocalyptic world, and the hope of change and enlightenment as the old is swept away giving room for a new way of life. This exhibition will be held concurrently with the ELEVATION exhibit.
