WACO Theater Center presents the
WEARABLE ART GALA
with the support of Parkwood Entertainment
October 22, 2022 | Santa Monica, California
Step into Harlem Nights
This year we relive the history of Harlem and step into the night—celebrating the fashions of the 1920s-50s. After two years away, this will be a night to remember.
From music and dancing to savory culinary dishes and signature cocktails, we’ll experience the big ballrooms, jazz clubs, speakeasies, iconic restaurants and theaters where artists such as Duke Ellington, Bill Bojangles Robinson, Zora Neale Hurston, Cab Calloway, Langston Hughes, Billie Holiday, Pearl Primus, Ella Fitzgerald and others performed.
The films “Harlem Nights” and “The Cotton Club” serve as this year’s inspiration. The evening will reclaim the artistic legacies of our ancestors and bring Harlem to Los Angeles.
