"I didn't know what to expect when I walked into the 2009 Artist Battle at the Russell Industrial Center on Friday night, but I'm going to blow the conclusion right now: I'm going back next year. Virtually every medium of art was represented, and every artist was having a blast, talking, networking, and doing whatever it is that artists do when they're not bleeding creativity. One of my favorites was this area that sectioned off using kind of a veily-mesh... as the sun was setting, it lit up like a giant, 30'x30' golden lamp... way cool! I had to jet early, but let me assure you that I was DESPISING having to walk back to my car and leave. The air was literally heavy with creativity and creation...
Highly recommended! - Ross Sandelius
