“Uncommon Threads: Wearable Art Show” took over the East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library on Dec. 5 as models showed off unusual designs.

Culture Candy has hosted the national competition since 2007 to showcase the best in wearable art.

The juror, location and theme change but the innovative presentation, focus on the artist experience, and $1,000 cash prize remain constant.

This year’s theme, “Epilogue,” asked artists to meditate on notable books, authors or literary characters and use wearable art as means of opening up a conversation about these influences.
