2010 Artists'Garage Sale - May 22

Keep May 22 open for this artlacious event !!!!

News - the Artists' Garage Sale is a go:
This new partnership between POSSCA and the Arts Commission for 2010 represents a changing of the guard for the Artists' Garage Sale. What would have been a project elimination due to City budget cuts has turned into a fundraising opportunity for one of Olympia's most venerable arts organizations. POSSCA's mission to promote arts & arts education in the South Sound region is very much in keeping with the interests of the Arts Commission, and the increase in fees for the event will go to scholarships for community's young artists. The Arts Commission is pleased to have found such a perfect partner in POSSCA and will work with them this year to show them the ropes, so that the transition of event management between our two organizations is as seamless as possible. Another change to the application process is a second application sheet noting more detailed expectations for the event, pulled together from last year's evaluations. These are the changes that you, the vendors, wanted to see in the event, so please make note of them.

Changed the date of this class so I can participate in the Artists' Garage Sale
