“The purpose of the ArtWalk kickoff party was to provide artists, venues, volunteers and supporters an opportunity to network and learn key dates and information about ArtWalk 2011,” said Dana Kollewehr, a member of the Grand Haven ArtWalk Committee and executive director of the Grand Haven Main Street Downtown Development Authority.

More than 180 artists participated during last year’s event. According to event organizers, a total of 80 people signed up to take part in this year’s show. Thirty-five of those were artists, 14 were venue owners and 21 were volunteers.
