Art After Dark has been reimagined this year as a virtual experience—hosted by Jan Arnold, CND co-founder and style director, and Gwen Bates, Director of Fashion Week San Diego. Gather with those on your quarantine list and celebrate Halloween with a visual spectacle of wearable art that is equal parts art, fashion, and fun!

Enjoy an eclectic fashion show live-streamed from the museum, complete with commentary and behind the scenes peeks at the road to the runway. In addition to voting on favorite looks, bidding on coveted must-haves will be available. Be sure to get your tickets early before prices increase on October 26.

The preshow begins at 6:00pm with flashbacks to prior years’ Art After Dark experiences and entertainment. Hosts will then share the road to the runway for this year’s artists and their extreme wearable art.

Eclectic wearable art creations by local fashionistas and featured artist Melissa Meier will strut their way across the runway. Cast your vote for the People’s Choice winner and bid on your favorite ensembles and accessories. Click here to preview the artwork and bid on your favorites.
