NEIGHBORHOOD NOTES | Call to Artists – Fire and Ice – Seward Art Festival Merges with Franklin Frolic.


IT’S HAPPENING AGAIN! Friday and Saturday, December 2nd and 3rd, 2011 – two days of Culture, Art, Performance, Drama, Music, Food, Beverages, & Delight!

This year the Seward Neighborhood Group is working with the Seward Civic & Commerce Association (SCCA) to combine the Franklin Frolic with the Seward Arts Festival. The goal is to increase the visibility of both events and draw more crawlers to our Seward Artists.  

Artists can choose whether to display their art in their own home or in a business along Franklin Avenue. The Seward Neighborhood Group says they are happy to pair artists with a local business.

The Art Crawl brochure will be included in the Winter edition of the Seward Profile.  This will be delivered to over 4400 households the last week in November.  This means great coverage for artists, but also a much earlier deadline to participate. In fact, registration must be in by October 28th!

Interested participants may register online: or call the SNG for more information: 612-338-6205, x119
