Digital artists and friends get wild at BDA’s 5th birthday blast

| Oct 16, 2009

We debut our new and gossipy section with this Party Report…

It was a wild one Friday night, Oct. 16, at Boulder Digital Arts‘ Fifth Birthday Party, at Photo Craft Imaging’s expansive digs in the old Harley-Davidson showroom next to the post office on 55th Street. We’re thinking a good 400 people, most of whom were digital creatives – web developers and designers, videographers, you get the pix. Co-founders Bruce Borowsky and Zach Daudert have grown that li’l BDA to a big operation, training gazillions of us to get digital, and helping the digital arts community to schmooze and love each other. Soon…a bigger, badder BDA classroom facility. Go, BDA, go!
