Highlighting (Other) Artists in the Eastside Culture Crawl

One of the downsides of taking part in the Eastside Culture Crawl as an artist is that I’ll be tied to my venue all weekend long and won’t get to see everyone else’s work. (Insert sadface here).The Crawl is an event I look forward to attending every year and now I get to experience it on the other side.

I thought I’d highlight some of the other artists I would go visit if I could. Some of these recommendations are people I’ve visited in previous years and love their work, and others are artists I’ve had the pleasure of meeting since becoming a member of The Crawl. Every single one of them creates amazing work.
