Tiffany and Co. Collaboratively Shine in Bushwick

Visual artist Rah Crawford facilitated a creative retreat for Tiffany and Company’s Global Store Development Team on September 9, 2016. This year’s event was hosted at Lightspace Studios, a 5,100 square foot production facility located in Bushwick, a neighborhood whose creativity and arts scene has become known around the world. The Tiffany and Co. team received an informative street art tour along with hands on instruction from Rah on the technical and creative uses of spraypaint. The team quickly went into action painting canvassed surfaces and collaborated on large 10ft wide works of art which used iconic Tiffany and Co. imagery.

Rah Crawford has been active in Bushwick for several years as a creative pioneer. As the artist to create the first mural on Troutman st. and publisher of Wickbush, a print and digital media hybrid that focuses on arts and culture of the neighborhood—Rah Crawford has been instrumental in encouraging the creative spirit of the community. As creative director of the 2015 Bushwick Film Festival, Tedx Bushwick 2015 speaker and 2016 TedxBushwick Co-organizer, Rah Crawford continues to be a major creative catalyst in the community.
