I’m delighted with the work by my protege Mary Laurel True. She made the decision a number of years ago to only wear used clothing, and to create a daily garment for herself that reflected her day. Much of her work for the program was planning documentation of the daily clothing. She made a video of that, as well as of a “30 Minute Challenge” to dress two models at a favorite used clothing store. The projector screen is surrounded by some of her daily wardrobe choices. Additionally, she created a little shop for the opening of “True Finds”. A garment made from her checks to the used clothing stores “Check It Out” is on the mannequin. This is Mary Laurel True speaking at last night’s artist talk. Go Mary Laurel!
