This ‘art happening’ officially titled “Art is a Drag” is unique in that it focuses on the creative process of 'drag' as a performance art, not just entertainment or a novelty.
All aspects of 'drag' (i.e. character development, transformation make-up, wardrobe/costume and performance) are considered and will be presented exhibition-style in the format of a classic Art Walk event. The performance-art aspect of drag will be integrated with the visual arts in an interdisciplinary approach that will hone the focus on the creative process.
This event also serves as a fundraiser for the Sanford Art Walk as a whole.

Art is a drag
The Sanford Art Walk
Visual art & Drag are both pure forms of creativity and self-expression. Whether good or bad, tasteful or tacky, both take guts to produce and even more to exhibit.
The resident artists of Sanford Arts Community believed that combining the two art forms for an evening would create at minimum a celebration of the act of self-expression, at best an Art Happening that will be elevating to all who encounter.
Everyone is invited!
Produced by the Sanford Art Walk & the Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center.
