Stacy Scibelli will take “playing dress-up” to a whole new level. Her interactive, sculptural fashion design blends traditional craft with contemporary art. Consisting of unique, ambiguous, hand-made garments, her project involves the audience creatively by allowing them to try on her garments any way they please, encouraging direct interactions and dialogue among strangers. While in residency, Scibelli will further her exploration into public engagement and expression with free workshops ranging from wearable art to pickling.

Scibelli has just recently relocated to Boston to pursue teaching at Mount Ida College and Lasell College. She is a recipient of an Assets for Artists Grant through the Midas Collaborative with a community partner in Mass MOCA, a Franklin Furnace Grant, a project grant from Possible Futures in Atlanta GA, and a residency in Portland ME.
