RAW: Natural Born Artists has arrived in Denver. This organization, created by artists for artists, is an independent and international community that celebrates and encourages rising artists and their many different talents. RAW welcomes all types and genres of art, including fashion, music, film, visual and performing art, makeup and hairstylist art, and many more. RAW encourages the development and expression of art in all its forms throughout the sixty cities in the United States, Canada, England and Australia that they operate in. Their mission statement is a beacon to aspiring artists, assuring them that there is an environment that will help them grow, flourish and make connections in their specific areas of expertise:
Our mission is to provide independent artists within the first 10 years of their career with the tools, resources and exposure needed to inspire and cultivate creativity.
In every city RAW visits, the directors of the program hand pick multiple local artists for each category being showcased. This diversity of exhibits creates an environment of fun and excitement where artists, as well as the public, can meet, discuss and compare all forms of art. Not only does this provide artists a safe place to promote themselves, but RAW allows them to join a real community of people who respect and look out for one another. Becoming an artist with RAW means becoming a member of a family.
Denver RAW will be an experience in art and culture that is not to be missed. On March 27th, over forty local artists will present their work at City Hall in one huge night of artistic spirit and expression, beginning at 7 PM.
