The museums and cultural institutions globally that present art in curated exhibitions serve a vital role in our communities to preserve the powerful contributions that artists provide to humanity. WAM has a similar mission and is dedicated to celebrate the genre of  “Wearable Art” in studio jewelry, textiles, fashion, design - indelible messages that often "MOVE" us emotionally, often portrayed with us, on our body. For the past quarter century, my gallery Sculpture To Wear (just celebrated it's 50th anniversary from its roots of NYC established in 1973) has been instrumental in introducing the concept of and cultivating the world of wearable art in the United States. It’s now time to serve a larger audience, by creating a non-profit institution with dynamic art and education as an omnipotent component and establishing legacy as the foundation. I invite you to join me on the next stage of my indelible journey.


The Wearable ART Museum, is dedicated to exhibit, explore and celebrate the worlds of wearable art, studio jewelry, textiles, costumes, fiber and related mixed media. WAM! will utilize innovative technology, master craftsmanship and unbridled creativity as tools to communicate, educate and inspire legacy driven exhibitions by international designers, inventors, architects, and artists, sponsored by collectors and philanthropists. This dynamic immersion inspires a “catalyst for conversation” within the local community, nationally and globally by creatives who aim to integrate generational diversity through their personal visions. WAM! will present programming to invite community engagement, educational outreach and purpose driven grant solicitation and fundraising. Workshops by artists and professionals will feature interactive experiences to encourage guests to “play with art”. Additionally, various curatorial themes, will be used to authentically integrate other mediums (painting, photography, sculpture, etc.) into the robust cultural curriculum of demonstrations, academic lectures, media, and interactive programming. The museum will include a retail and on-line store featuring work by exhibiting artists and other makers. Lisa M. Berman of Sculpture To Wear (www.sculpturetowear.com) and Berman Arts Agency will serve as the Museum Director.
