If it’s your first time visiting the Eastside Culture Crawl, it can feel a little intimidating mainly due to the sheer number of participating studios.

A simple way to ease yourself into the madness is to start at Parker Street Studios, one of the largest buildings that is involved in the culture crawl. Located at 1000 Parker Street, this building houses over 140 studios showcasing everything from paintings to ceramics, sculptures to textile design, and illustrations to woodworking.

The weather is looking good this weekend so bundle up, grab a coffee and a snack from one of the onsite food carts and check out our five must-visit studio picks from Parker Street Studios.

1. Robinson Studio

Sculptor David Robinson used materials like bronze, iron, steel and silver to create his hauntingly emotive and visceral pieces. Be sure to zoom in on all the small details and nuances he includes in all of his work.
