ART'S ALIVE MISSION STATEMENT
The La Conner Art's Commission is dedicated to encouraging artistic expression and providing diverse, high quality art for the enjoyment of residents and visitors.
History In the early 1980's La Conner Resident Martin Hahn, owner of the Black Swan Cafe came up with an idea for an annual arts festival. One evening in 1984 Hahn, together with his staff Ed Kamuda, Michael Klough and Paul Hanson, began discussing the concept of a festival that would highlight the local art as well as business community.
What Hahn envisioned was an event that would extend La Conner's commercial season during the stark times, the month of November. They would call it "ART'S ALIVE "
