The fourth-annual festival is an opportunity for local artists to present and sell their work to the community. During the festival, artists can set up and operate booths to sell their work. Books, artwork, CDs and other wares are acceptable, but only handmade items made by the applicant(s) may be displayed for sale.
This year, exhibiters will have a chance to win a $200 scholarship. The prize will be awarded in the form of a gift certificate for a class/workshop to advance in an art field or to use for supplies.
The ArtFest is open to all ASU students, staff, faculty, student groups, alumni, retirees, anyone who is eligible for benefits, and anyone who has been riffed and still unemployed.
Artists are required to pay a $15 table fee ($10 for each additional table) and donate one item, created by the artists and with a value of at least $35, to the silent auction.
