SALT LAKE CITY, June 2 – Craft Lake City is excited to announce the exhibitors that have been selected to participate in the Craft Market at the 2016 Twilight Concert Series.
One of the highlights of summer in downtown Salt Lake City is the Twilight Concert Series held on Thursday evenings July 21 – September 1. The concerts present a wide range of outstanding musicians from across the country and around the world.
For the first time this year, Craft Lake City is partnering with the Twilight Concert Series to feature selected artisans at the Craft Market held during the Thursday night concerts. This new program will feature a sampling of the DIY Festival’s eclectic variety of artisans, including jewelry, screen-printing, craft foods and DIY-engineered electronics. For each performance, Craft Lake City will feature 10 artisans from among those selected to participate in the 2016 DIY Festival.
“The Salt Lake City Arts Council and Craft Lake City share a similar mission, which is to help promote local artisans while making art accessible to the community in innovative ways,” said Jesse Schaefer, Program Manager at Salt Lake City Arts Council. “We are excited to partner with Craft Lake City this year to bring a wide variety of local artisans to the Twilight Concert Series Craft Market.”
This partnership with the Twilight Concert Series helps further Craft Lake City’s mission to elevate the creative culture within the arts community and give exposure and promotion to local artisans.
