Artists Needed for 2016 Art Fest

Join us on Saturday, June 4th at the Pittsburg Farmers Market for the reveal!  Come meet the talented artists behind the project and see their incredible work from 8-10am. This is your one opportunity to see all 30 objects together in one place until the Crawford County Fair in August. After the reveal, our cows, pigs and ponies will go to their "homes" around town including downtown buisinesses for the summer, then available for auction on Saturday, August 6th.

Details on auction to come. Check our webpage or Facebook for more detailed updates on this event!

For more information, contact SEK Art Fest Chair, Leslie Harris at 931-436-0454 or email
