With Event Santa Cruz’s 2016 NEXTies just around the corner, (Friday April 8th) we thought we would take a moment to highlight their artist of the year, Jaime Sanchez.
Some of Jaime’s Work
In addition to being a muralist and artist Jaime has made significant contributions to the Watsonville community, helping to improve neighborhoods and fight vandalism.
The NEXTies is an annual award ceremony hosted by our friends at Event Santa Cruz. Whether you have attended before, or if this is your first year, we highly recommend attending this fun and entertaining Santa Cruz event!Get NEXTies Tickets
