Lockport Alderwoman at Large Ellen Schratz played a key roll in making this event happen. In a post on social media, she thanked all who helped, stating, “Thank you to all of the artists who joined us and created such beautiful works of art! This event would not have been possible without the generous support of the Grigg Lewis Foundation, GLDC, Lockport Main Street, and members of the City Events committee. Thank you!!”
