Run by artist volunteers who understand the needs and challenges of artists and how to best connect with consumers, the festival is founded by Randall D. Fox, an arts advocate that and owner and operator of The Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces (AFFPs). An organization that supports arts groups throughout the Southeast and hosts award-winning festivals created by artists for artists, upon spending time in Dallas, not only did Fox fall in love with the city and art community but as soon as he saw Reverend Park and the Turtle Creek neighborhood he couldn’t think of a better place to host a free arts festival and start a new tradition.
