For the Sake of Art is a biennial wearable art competition that celebrates the vibrant talent of emerging artists and designers. Originally conceived as a fundraiser to support the restoration of the Texas Southern University’s 128 murals, the competition has grown to feature works from art alumni from the 1950’s through the 21st century. Each participating designer selects a featured work of art that serves as inspiration and creates a garment based upon the chosen work. Designers are encouraged to be as creative and as imaginative as possible. In past competitions, murals, sculptures, ceramics, paintings, mosaics, and drawings have all been used to create exciting wearable art. Judges select the winners based upon criteria such as the overall design, the construction of the garment, and imaginative use of materials.
