Photos: Craft Lake City 2010

Posted August 17, 2010

 

SLUG's 2nd annual Craft Lake City took place at the Gallivan Center on August 14th, 2010.  With over 100 artists on hand, the event filled both the upper and lower sections of the Gallivan Center.  Live music from locally loved bands and djs such as The Red Bennies, Spell Talk, and Muscle Hawk kept the crowd entertained if they needed a break from browsing, while local b-boy and hip hop dance crews took the spotlight when the main stage was being set up for the next performance. 

 

The attendees were procuring goods that included prints, jewelry, hand made clothing and accessories, longboards, and vintage photo equipment.  The quality and thought put into the products was visible both when examing items and when discussing them with their sellers.  The range of creativity and interest that was displayed at Craft Lake City gave attendees the opportunity to find anything and everything that could be of interest to those who prefer hand-made to overproduced. 

 

Craft Lake City provides an outlet for artists and goods-makers to get their names out to the masses while also providing a physical link between these artists and the customer.  Both the artists and the SLC community showed that there is a growing population whom prefer this physical conection rather than the distinctly lacking connection of big brands and small thought.  Well done SLC.
