Come to Community Day @ SECCA where you can explore the inspiring works of art in SECCA’s Out of Fashion, Margarita Cabrera: The Space in Between and Lilly McElroy exhibitions. Ignite your imagination as you create works of wearable art, bring hand drawn creations to life through sewing and enjoy interactive performances inspired by Lilly McElroy.
Hands-on Activity: Wearable Green Fashion

Enjoy the exciting works of art in the Out of Fashion exhibition then create your own pieces of wearable green fashion,such as handbags and wallets, using recycled materials.
Hands-on Activity:Traditional Mexican Folk Art Yarn Painting
Location: Auditorium Lobby
From soft vinyl sculptures to hand-sewn desert plants, Margarita Cabrera uses a variety of materials to share stories in her exhibition The Space in Between. Create your own imaginative creations using yarn during this hands-on activity inspired by a traditional Mexican Folk Art technique.
Performances: Inter:ACT with Peppercorn Childrenʼs Theatre
What you Wear
Location: Auditorium
Select items from a pile of various non-clothing objects to create a unique outfit drawn from your imagination and inspired by Out of Fashion. Then model your creation during a runway style photo shoot.
Figure of Speech
Location: Overlook Gallery
Artist Lilly McElroy is inspired by metaphors and figures of speech. During this interactive performance various figures of speech such as “running out of time,” “cat got your tounge?” and “falling in love,” will be printed on small scraps of paper which will be drawn by participants out of a hat. Once the phrase is drawn, participants in groups will stage a visual representation or performance to illustrate their selection.
