RAW returns to the Melrose Ballroom to spotlight independent talent in visual art, film, fashion & accessories design, music, performance art, beauty, crafts, tech, and photography.
RAW is a fun and alternative way for creatives to showcase both to their local community and the world at large. We are not your average art show. We are loud, colorful, creative, and all about our artists. We are RAW.
