The world is a mad place so what better way to express this than through the medium of hats! Art Lofts is pleased to showcase local hat-inspired works including art with hats and hats as art. Come see the wild eccentricities of our own mad hatters, and help selected the Baddest Maddest Hatter award by voting for your favorite piece. The winning artist will get a cash prize. Pieces will be available for purchase — some right off of the heads of the artists themselves! And for those wanting to find the perfect and unusual Mother’s Day gift, we’re here for you, too.
Patrons attending the show are encouraged to participate. Anyone who comes to the opening reception wearing a hat is eligible to participate in the Baddest Maddest Hat Contest. To enter, wear a hat to the Second Saturday ArtWalk between 5 and 9 PM on May 11. A photographer at Art Lofts will take a picture and collect contact information for each participant in the contest. These pictures will be assembled into a collage work and displayed as part of the art show. After the reception, a judge will select the winner with the most outstanding /hattitude-inspired piece to win a cash prize.
