We see you, Phoenix.
When we set our sights on finding up-and-coming creatives pushing boundaries in performing art, visual art, design, culinary art, and urban vision, you suggested hundreds of nominees about to hit it big.
We narrowed down that long list to 15 finalists for the 2014 Big Brain Awards. They burn wood, brew beer, and better Phoenix. Meet them, learn from them, make Phoenix even better with them.
