arts festival

the famous august arts festival has become a capitalistic venture. in these hard times a community board that gets free access to park and streets will charge 20.00 per space. this was a free event enpowering many artist who could not afford a fee exchanging and contributing their art, time and effort in making the arts and cultural festival a success. the artist' prices were lowered due to the no cost for space, and community shoppers benefitted. a feeling that the festival was within the poorest person economic range made for a wonderful spirited wholesome event. this was truly a grassroots community empowerment event without the money grab... .....where will an artist like black cherokee get 20.00 to exhibit?
