Fewer artists (150) and smaller crowds (estimated 13,700 people) resulted in increased walkability, better visibility of artwork, and a safer event. The shift to a $5 admission and gated event (comp admission was given to all 91 people who made a request) was lauded by many, despite early social media naysayers. Artists travel from every corner of the country to participate; many experienced record breaking sales.
The cost of presenting Art Fair (approximately $130,000/year) is paid for by artists’ fees, and business sponsorships. Artists keep 100% of their artwork sales. Admission income this year raised $62,077 making this year’s event a true fundraiser for KAC, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit. Funds support year-round programming including outreach education, public sculpture, and free exhibitions.
Proceeds also support planning the July 9 & 10, 2022 event, including an economic impact study and strategic planning. We invite you to join the volunteer leadership team and we welcome your continued feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org.
