The Kinetic Museum also houses five decades of Kinetic Sculpture race history, and an exclusive selection of Kinetic merchandise. 

The Queen Lotta Paintbuckets's works combine her love of the natural backdrops of Humboldt with interestingly repurposed materials, and a unique sense of humor. The Humboldt Bay, Arcata bottoms, and other recognizable locations are whimsically represented using everything from plastic wrap and aluminium foil to fabric samples, glitter, and packing materials. 

The Museum stays open late after Arts Alive, bumping with the grooves of DJ Commander Chainstain, while kinetic fans enjoy the Queens' Bar, featuring brews by Mad River Brewery.

Kinetic Kouture Fashion with a Re-Purpose October 1, 2016 at the Morris Graves Museum of Art

The Kinetic Universe presents ‘Kinetic Kouture: Fashion with a Re-Purpose’ at the Morris Graves Museum of Art on October 1 at 9:30 p.m. post Arts Alive! Admission is $10 at the door and all proceeds from the event support Kinetic Universe and the Morris Graves.

The show begins promptly at 9:30 p.m. with original creations modeled on the runway, music and specialty cocktails. The grand prize winner's creation will be displayed at the Morris Graves Museum of Art "Junque Arte" exhibition opening October 8.

‘Kinetic Kouture: Fashion with a Re-Purpose' is a fashion show combining creative reuse of materials and haute couture into an evening of runway fashion and fun. The "trashion" attire is created with as many upcycled materials as possible, saving waste from the landfill and challenging some of our community's finest artists and tailors to put their creativity and resourcefulness to the test.

Would you like to enter? Entering the contest is easy - just bring your fashionable creation and your model (if it isn't yourself) to the Museum by 8:00 pm to get oriented, conduct a run-through and fill out your entry form. All contestants can enter more than once but will need to provide one model per creation because there is limited time and space for changing. The contest is FREE to enter. For spectators, the cost is $10 per person at the door and proceeds support Kinetic Universe. All ages are welcome. Come see how one person's trash can be transformed into high-fashion treasure!
