RAW Artists Chicago: FIXATE

This month of July has been an exciting one for Chicago’s art community. The city is the proud home to many new, up-and-coming artists, bringing new ideas and concepts to their fields. Designed with new, fresh, artistic faces in mind, RAW – Natural Born Artists, was created to showcase artwork, network, and connect to others in the industry. RAW Artists welcomes the fields of feature films, performing arts, music, fine art, photography, fashion, makeup artistry and modeling.

Founded in 2009 by Heidi Luerra and a team of collaborators, RAW Artists was born. A young fashion designer herself, Luerra thought, “there’s got to be a better way to get my work out there.” This revelation and organization of RAW Artists has grown over the years, taking it’s concept to cities across and beyond the United States. Now with world-wide expansion, RAW Artists holds creative events and showcases in over 70 cities across the world.

This month the Metro Chicago hosted RAW Artists Chicago: FIXATE. The exciting evening included an eclectic variety of creative talents. With an atmosphere like no other art showcase, RAW’s energy is vibrant and stimulating. FIXATE featured visual artists, fashion shows, live music, dance performances and designer vendor booths, displaying their crafts. Like RAW events from past years, this evening did not disappoint! As a brilliant and unique experience, I recommend new and independent artists to attend a RAW event in their city. In the meantime, visit RAW Artists’ website which has been designed as another venue for the public to view past and present RAW Artists and their works.
