Tonight, we host the ninth annual preview of Discarded to Divine with St. Vincent de Paul, live kora music with Keenan Weber, and hands-on art making for everyone.
Discarded to Divine is a fashion show and auction that showcases the work of local designers who transform discarded items into one-of-a-kind garments, accessories, and home decor creations, which are then auctioned off to benefit programs of the St. Vincent de Paul Society. The de Young serves as host to the exclusive fashion preview in Wilsey Court and the Piazzoni Murals Room.
The Sankofa Project, led by Keenan Weber, plays music of Africa and America, including traditional blues, jazz, and Americana.
