Art has been a friend of Old Hilliardfest for a number of years, first volunteering at the festival and later becoming an Executive Board Member at Large of the Hilliard Civic Association. Art serves the role of Volunteer Coordinator on the Old Hilliardfest Art & Street Fair Planning Committee, but when he's not working hard on his Old Hilliardfest responsibilities, he can be found at a number of other Central Ohio festivals either volunteering or as a festivalgoer.
