Our very own leasing consultant Jeremy Michael Calhoun is also a resident artist here at the ilume. Jeremy Michael Calhoun presents his first collection of more than forty original bow ties done with mixed media fabrics, metals, wood, and plastic. The bow tie originated among Croatian mercenaries during the Prussian wars of the 17th century, and was soon adopted by the french with the formal name cravat, which is French for “Croat”. Bow ties have always been associated with different professions such a architects, attorneys, educators, and politicians, but have graduated to an art form in recent years. The artist’s adventurous and unique adaptions have been a placement for fashion aficionados and collectors alike.
