All of us at the Columbia County Council on the Arts wish to give such a great round of thanks to everyone who made ArtsWalk such a success-- Every artist, volunteer, sponsor and visitor was a beautiful thread which, when woven together, became the beautiful tapestry which was ArtsWalk! We thank you ALL so much for your participation in the many events which we hope offered something for everyone and we thank you for your continued support which makes it possible for us to continue in our mission of producing enriching programs that advance the arts and engage our community's residents and visitors.
