Eastside Culture Crawl, Union Gospel Mission and the Mayor!

Yesterday, Vancouver Mayor, Gregor Robertson, was on hand to open the show at the Union Gospel Mission that was part of the Eastside Culture Crawl. Great turn out… the chalk work by the artists were stunning, the photo pieces had such a great feel of the area and the people.

Here is the picture of Mayor Gregor Robertson, Leah Gregg from UGM and Valerie Arntzen, Executive Director of the Eastside Culture Crawl.

The Eastside Culture Crawl is an annual FREE 3-day visual arts festival. This event involves artists in their studios who work on the east side of Vancouver, BC, Canada in an area bounded by Main Street to Commercial Drive and from First Avenue north to the waterfront. Check out www.eastsideculturecrawl.com for loads more information.

The mission of the Eastside Culture Crawl Society is to promote Vancouver’s east side artists and their work by fostering excellence, encouraging visibility and forging partnerships.  The Eastside Culture Crawl Society brings arts to the community through the ongoing creation of events and programming that support the growth of east side artists.
