July 6, 2015. For the last ten years, the Elkland Art Center has hosted the Liberty Parade in celebration of Independence Day: a vibrant expression of the High Country’s strong community spirit presented through elaborate and colorful costumes, props and giant puppets. The parade took place on a field at the corner of Highway 194 and Railroad Grade Road in Todd, attracting 350-450 people. By Josiah Clark
Trash n’ Fashion is a runway show where designers are tasked with making something beautiful out of a business’s refuse. Items like paper, plastic and other dumpster-bound items are remade and repurposed into incredible pieces of wearable art, and all benefitting a great cause. The runway event will take place during the April First Friday Art Crawl in Downtown Boone on April 4.
