"ASI is excited to be working with the Council Member's office on this festival. This is a great way for local artists to be featured to celebrate Hertel Alley and all that the local neighborhood has to offer," said Jen Swan-Kilpatrick the Executive Director at Art Services Inc. "We've made this call for art accessible to artists just starting out, or for artists who have been doing their craft for a long time. It's important to focus on the depth and breadth of talent and creativity in the community."
