Jason Hackenwerth’s Wearable Sculptures
A&H’s Maitland Historical Museum
Jason Hackenwerth’s sophisticated use of latex balloons to create massive installations is known internationally. In addition to the A&H Gallery installation, Hackenwerth translates this work into mobile sculptures with his Wearables. The Wearables will pop up in guerilla style mini-exhibitions across Orange County during Art31. Be among the first to experience the lovely absurdity and inherent grace of Hackenwerth’s Wearables during Culture Pop!

  • Award-winning photographer Jim Hobart of Macbeth Photo and visual artist Brendan O’Connor collaborate on an interactive art-making activity for guests that promises to be a playful and visually stunning mixture of fine photography and illustration.
