Thank you For The Love Of Art Art Fair and KoZmo Events! Promoter Shireen Cline worked tirelessly for us to bring this event to the vibrant South Bend Community. Cortez Design Clocks and Earth's Edge Artworks had a great time exhibiting at the Century Center! Lots of visitors and sales! Quality over quantity prevailed. Moving the event to South Bend was brilliant! Beautiful area and an Art Museum right next door. We dined at local restaurants and stayed at the Double Tree steps from the Century Center. We had a lot of visitors who saw the live interview on WNDUTV and came out to see our work and greet us. South Bend is a very welcoming community!

For The Love of Art
Just got back from a one day show in South Bend, IN, run by Shireen Kline. It's called "For The Love of Art". Beautiful venue in downtown South Bend. Host hotel was an equally cool Hilton Doubletree. It's even connected to the Century Center, where the show takes place. She uses the 2 ballrooms at the center where roughly 45-50 artists have their spaces, with pipe and drape and electricity if you need it. Space fees start at $165 for a 10x10. No extra fee for a corner, which I really appreciated.
Show is always the first weekend in March. Weather was cold with flurries but people still came out. Large parking lot ($5) and an entry fee of $7. Setup was easy thru four dock doors and plenty of large, carts available. Same with takedown.
I've never seen a promoter with so much energy. She had a great team of volunteer helpers to answer all questions quickly. Entertainment was excellent - She even had a poetry slam. Country duo, Rock duo, and a youth chamber quartet. With the room being small, the entertainment was never overpowering. Lunches were delivered from 3 area restaurants and delivered to your booth by Shireen and the volunteers. Storage in two corners of the floor. Raffle prizes given thruout the event and at the end, awards for the artists.
Everyone seemed to be happy with their sales, making their expenses and a bit more. Doesn't sound like much but She is still trying to get this event going strong. I could see great things in the future for this show. Would be worth a try if you don't have to travel too far. I live in Naperville and the trip was a doable 2 1/2 hrs one way.
Keep this little gem in mind for 2018! A very fun, very 'chill' time was had by all.
