SPECIAL EVENT INSURANCE
The insurance we have purchased for the event does not offer any coverage for our artists or their work. Artists are responsible for acquiring insurance per their needs and insurer's recommendations.
Please note that this is an outdoor event and we are unable to make any refunds in the case of bad weather on the days preceding and the day of the event.
Artists must provide their own 10' x 10' tent.
No electrical service is provided.
OPTIONAL ART RAFFLE
We ask each exhibiting artist to consider donating one piece of his/her work to the art raffle. This raffle is completely optional for the artists and your choice to participate or not in no way influences the selection committee’s decision. All proceeds from the raffle are used to further Francis Park improvements – sculptures, plantings and park maintenance. There will be a special section in the program that will feature the art that has been donated. Your piece will be displayed at your own booth and we will provide you with a specially marked box for people to place their entries. This is a great way to increase the traffic at your booth – about 90% of the artists participated last year and they were very pleased with the raffle. If you wish to be a part of the art raffle, indicate so on the application below and review and save this DOCUMENT.
