Art vs. Craft: Round 6
Art vs. Craft: Round 6 July 7 & 8, 2007

2300 shoppers came to round 6 of Art vs. Craft held in Milwaukee, WI July7th & 8th.

200 swag bags were gone in less than 20 minutes and people started lining up outside an hour before the doors on Saturday!

Saturday night was the first time we hosted music at the event in the Todd Wehr Auditorium on the MSOE campus where the event was held. Calvin Johnson (K Records) headlined the show with local support The Goodnight Loving and The Trusty Knife kicked off the evening.

We also had a few new additions to the show including the very sucessful popsicle cart (all proceeds when to Handmade Nation, a documentary about the DIY art & craft community) as well as a "Make & Take" section of the show sponsored by Duncan/Tulip craft suppliers and ran by Fasten Clothing Collective. Kids and adults came and revamped shirts and decorated them with supplies donated by the sponsors.

Thanks to everyone who made this event possible including all the volunteers who worked the door and did behind the sceans stuff and our sponsors:
