Rosewood will have a few of our own home grown artists featured during 701 CCA’s self-led driving tour of Midlands-area artists. Check out photography like Brian Dressler’s rad picture of Columbia at right (and more!) during the driving tour open house April 21st and 22nd.
Also featured in Rosewood will be awesome crafters Kelly and J. Spencer Shull (312 S. Woodrow), mixed media artist Amanda Ladymon (413 S. Woodrow), and stone mason Jefferson Hubbell (905 Chevis). McClellan Douglas, Jr. (3735 Prentice), painter of the mural-in-progress below, is also on the tour. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to experience some great neighborhood artists! Look for a program and map in the April 18th edition of the Free Times and on the CCA website.
