If you live in the United States, you’re probably spending at least a portion of the day attending a bar-be-que or watching fireworks, ostensibly to honor the ratification of the nation’s Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. 

At Indiewalls, we have a slightly different idea of what it means to celebrate independence: taking time to recognize the work of our artist community. As independent art gains in popularity, opportunity expands for art to create authentic connections between living artists and eager viewers. And independent art that inspires curiosity, elevates design, and prompts novel experiences in everyday spaces should always be celebrated!

Join us in connecting with the power of independent art as we revisit a few favorite posts from the archive in our Studio Series. Here’s a roundup:
