Become a Designer

The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes’ signature fundraising event, Recycled Runway 2017 will be held Saturday, June 3, 2017 at The Corning Museum of Glass!

We will be jurying design entries: Designers of all ages are welcome. Designers can submit as many proposals as they wish, however, the panel may have to limit the number of accepted designs per designer.

Please refer to the Design Guidelines and submit the attached Proposal Form to The ARTS Council by Friday, February 3, 2017. The results of the jurying will be announced no later than Friday, February 17, 2017.

The ARTS Council can serve as a collection point for recycled materials. Once we know what people need, we will issue a series of calls for materials, which should be helpful if your design requires a lot of a particular item.

Tell us as much as you can about your proposed design. We understand, however, that as art unfolds, it evolves and often changes. We won’t hold you to exactly what you propose but do want to know about the materials and concept so that we can ensure an eclectic and diverse fashion show. The more information you provide, the better we will be able to assess your proposal.
