In this town you can't swing a breakfast taco around without hitting someone who calls themselves an artist. Austin is full of folks working in fashion, music, film, and everything creative. It's no surprise then that Austin is one of 21 cities in which RAW operates. RAW is an independent arts organization for artists by artists that works to provide artists with everything needed to inspire and cultivate creativity.
Every season RAW awards the best artists in the categories of art, fashion, music, film, hair & makeup, photography, and performing art. The voting is left up to each city's local community, and then a panel of judges decides the national winners. This year's RAW Awards Semi Finals Showcase for Austin happened last Thursday at Club de Ville, and I went to check out what local artists had to show and I snapped some photos of all the weirdness.
Go to the RAW website to check out all the artists nominated for this year's RAW Awards.
