On The Road: The Brandon Cook Family Vacation

There are lots of artists for whom summer equals festival circuit. They pack up their van, truck or trailer and ride to one of the festivals in the region, setting up a booth and hauling in paintings, sculptures or craft, only to take it all down after a few days and return home. Few, however, pack up the whole family and leave for a cross-country festival excursion; even fewer with just $800 in the bank. But that’s how Ogden artist Brandon Cook and family spent their summer vacation.

Read about the trip in the September 2012 edition of 15 Bytes.

The founder of Artists of Utah and editor of its online magazine, 15 Bytes, Shawn Rossiter has undergraduate degrees in English, French and Italian Literature and studied Comparative Literature in graduate school before pursuing a career in art.

  1. GREAT back story, just what I look for. WOW!
    I found this by chance, I do research on artists regularly.
    I am soooooo happy to have found this.
    The art magazine could do more of these kind of stories, but they refuse to do them. Please keep doing these stories.
    It is always great to know how visual artists navigate the world an soft economies. BRAVO! BRAVO! BRAVO!!!!!
