Inspired by the performance garments in the exhibit In Her Closet - How to Make a Drag Queen, this year’s WorldFest craft is a jewelry-making activity. See pieces made by Damon Rule for local legend Mona Monclair, and then join Damon and staff 12:30 - 4:00 pm to create your own dazzling wearable artwork.
