Crawford Collective
2525 E. Crawford Avenue
Saint Francis, WI 53235

Newly established artist studio & Gallery - Crawford Collective is pleased to present a themed group exhibition co- curated by Milwaukee artists Amanda Stein and Anna Rodriguez. This one night extravaganza will be showcasing new works by national and international artists based in Milwaukee Wi - The air will be filled with sounds of live Milwaukee music (band to be announced) and smells of a local food truck.

Join us as the Crawford Collective transforms their gallery space into a color bound exhibition to behold. “The Monotonous life of Roy G. Biv” personifies the whimsical imagination of a man who never was . Co-curators Stein and Rodriguez demonstrate their enthusiasm for the art of curation through their newfangled exploration of installation in a gallery space. An environment encapsulated by a kaleidoscopic conglomeration of performance and multidisciplinary visual art is vibrantly complex, yet methodically soothing. The semblance of nostalgia lingers in thought, as the complexities of consciousness are transported into an introspective world beaming with color.
