Art vs. Craft at Turner Ballroom, 2005
Founded and organized by Faythe Levine, Art vs. Craft (2004-2014) was a juried event in Milwaukee WI featuring both emerging and established makers working in traditional and non-traditional mediums. The show brought together a diverse range of creatives who sold their handmade goods direct to the public. It provided an easy opportunity to avoid mass-produced goods by purchasing items directly from the source. AVC's main goal was to urge shoppers to buy handmade for the holiday season while encouraging thoughts about materials, labor and production. Over 10 years AVC was held in 4 different venues;Turner Ballroom, Milwaukee School of Engineering Campus, The Humphrey Scottish Rite Masonic Center and the Harley Davidson Museum, annually drawing over 3000 visitors through the doors at each event.
