#483 ... WOW

It's that time of the year for a bit of WOW ... and this mannequin is an interesting commentary in its self.

Montana World of WearableArt Awards Show - WOW

Step into a world where art and the human form combine, where dance, music and lighting tell a story of the body as a canvas; where the lines of fashion and art blur and merge as one.

A Montana WOW Awards Show can be difficult to describe, hard to define and utterly impossible to forget. A montage of theatre, dance, colour, movement and art, simply put, the Montana WOW Awards Shows are theatrical spectaculars.

Montana WOW is a two hour show held annually in September in Wellington, New Zealand to an audience of 30,000 per season. First shown in 1987, World of WearableArt originally began as a promotion for a rural art gallery in Nelson. Nelson sculptor Suzie Moncrieff had the vision to exhibit art in the form of a live theatrical show - and WOW has since grown to receive international acclaim.

i guess it took a lot of work to get this up and running. not really much of a 'wow', more of a 'huh' to my mind
