#50: Drew Austin
It’s easy to think of Drew Austin as some incarnation of the many-armed Hindu goddess Kali in a human artist’s body. There’s no other feasible explanation for how this young man, fresh out of art school, gets so much done. But all joking aside, Austin’s clearly a hard worker with a community-minded ethic, who’s always ready for the next challenge. A doer? For certain — whether he’s doing a live demo at the Denver Art Museum, creating a multimedia installation for charity, curating a show by women artists he admires or volunteering as an artist-in-residence for the Wayfaring Band, a nonprofit offering experiential adventures for young people living with cognitive and developmental disabilities. How does this complete package do it all? With curiosity and gusto, as you’ll learn from his answers to the 100CC questionnaire.
