Grind Nation Paradise was at the end of a Marathon! I had been on the road from my walk about that spring and was just beginning to move into the JBHM that summer. Paradise was at the Von Braun Civic Center and was the highly anticipated spring installment to the wildly popular local arts convention ; Grind Nation. I had contributed on the the inaugural s how the fall before and was the location scout for all of promo for Paradise. This venue had returning favorites from the fall event but we also hosted artists and designers from Texas and Florida. Even though I tend to stand out at these events, It was great to see everybody from the magazine and the photo shoot. It has been great to be a part of the magazine because they truly are ambassadors of the community. I've been impressed with the opportunity to be a host in the continuing trend of artists moving into Huntsville to be a part of the exploding urban arts scene.
