Alley Bird Number Seven is a homegrown multi-media movement of two artists that are joined by proximity and philosophies that translate the awe and curiosity of the every day world into art. Artists, Mark Cunningham and Lee Moore Crawford, create multi-media art in various forms such as visual art, music, parenting, comics, community events, gardening, education, poetry, and Ikebana. We endeavor to keep visual art accessible and affordable through pricing and community participation.
