Silhouettes: the Art Institute's 11th Annual Show

Posted by Brett Glass on Wed, Jun 24, 2009 at 3:00 PM

Did you know that the Art Institute's annual fashion show is its largest fundraiser for the Creative Arts Scholarship Fund? Well it is. That's in addition to being a really great show. I love it when altruism and entertainment are combined like that.
This was my first Art Institute show and I was pretty impressed. A few of these kids have a lot of talent. Check out more photos after the jump, I think you'll agree!
