Reader: Artopia was a cornucopia of fine art, street art and photographer
Where was the art in Artopia? That was the question one reader asked after looking at a slide show of Westword's entertainment extravaganza that filled five venues on Broadway with music, fashion, food, drinks...and yes, lots and lots of art.
The Impossible Winterbourne
You couldn't miss it...if you were there.
Bottlefly offers a tally:
