In our old studio space in Hartford Ct, an amazing building with lots of creative people, I became friends with a very talented printmaker/illustrator in the building. over the years I have been fascinated by her work and finally had the opportunity to collaborate with her on a project. Kate has produced the illustrations to be etched into the steel at the front of the bar in the NYV space and most likely will be working on the mural behind the bar as well. If you're interested you can check out her work via a link on our Instagram.
