Arts on the Avenue

Celebrating the visual arts community

“My success in the community has a deep foundation in the support that was given to me by Parks Alive!  One week I was playing at a coffee shop downtown, I had spent money on promotion and production, got paid very little for my efforts, and two people showed up. When I played with Park Alive! the first time, the audience was great and I was paid fairly for my performance. The stark contrast between these two experiences paints a picture of the power that Parks Alive! has to connect a community with some of the fantastic talent in this city that might not otherwise get the exposure necessary to make it to the next level.”
