RAW: Natural Born Artists presents Signature

Article by Natalie Neece

On April 20th, 2016, RAW Natural Born Artists presented their Signature festival at the House of Blues San Diego. The show showcased amazing artists from performers to make-up artists. Signature featured fashion designers Anna K Designs and CPC Swimwear. Guests jammed out to live music of DJ Effren Villan, Kingdom of Lights, Skyler Lutes and Tina Demmitt. Highlights of the evening include the mesmerizing Diana Follegati & Divas Dance Company, and The Flying Ballerinas as they glided across the stage. Pop-up visual art and photo galleries featured new works by Vanessa Eagerton, Mateo Vega, and Cassandra Schramm. One unique artist was Toni Burrell and Miss. T. Makeup who dolled up models to be living sculptures.
