RAW March 24, 2016 (3)

Fashion Editor Jessica Montour of Fashion Forward for Latin Life Media joined the energetic crowd as one of the best DJ’s in Denver, DJ Lo, mixed music that had the packed house dancing from start to end. These showcases are an ongoing effort to provide independent artists of all creative genres with the tools, resources and exposure needed to inspire & cultivate creativity. Artists on Thursday, March 24th included an array of individuals representing their love of jewelry making, wall art, photography, sketch, and fashion. With “ready to buy” art available, live performances and a runway show attendees can canoodle and purchase from local artisans on the spot.

“We have changed the format of RAW in 2016, doing one show every three months,” shared RAW Director Ryan. They will have all levels of City Hall open for the showcases and hope to open up the roof as weather permits as they feature more artists per show for “bigger and better” shows. Stay tuned for all the best up and coming RAW artists who are preparing their work to share in 2016. Fashion Editor Jessica Montour and Latin Life Media will be there to celebrate the underground and you should too! See everyone at the next RAW Showcase.
