About the artwork

Each year, The Current commissions a local artist to create the cover of the compilation. This year, we reached out to legendary hand-cut printmaker (and Amphetamine Reptile founder/co-owner of Grumpy's Bar) Tom Hazelmyer.

To learn more about Tom's work, check out this documentary made by our friends at MN Original. It features some interview clips with The Current's Music Director, David Safar:
