Manage your award

Want to get the word out about your arts or cultural event or exhibit? Here are some tips on sending out information to the public and local media.

Step 1. Gather all the details: who, what, where, when and why.

Step 2. Gather graphics for publicity. Gather photos, create a logo if necessary, work with a designer on the look and any printed materials.

Step 3. Write a press release and/or prepare a press kit and send to the media.


The Press Release

Press releases inform the media about your event and can inspire the media to publish a calendar listing or even cover the event. Click here for a description and example of the anatomy of a press release.

  • Try to let the media know what makes your event unique or relevant.
  • Be genuine. Exaggeration or inaccuracy will only hurt your chances of being a reliable media source. The more a press release reads like an actual news article, the better. Many smaller publications love releases they can print verbatim.
  • Press releases should look professional and be easy to read. Type double-spaced.
  • Make sure the organization's name, address, website and contact information is visible.
  • Include the media contact's name, direct phone line and e-mail address near the top of the first page.
  • Include a "pull date" (the last date of the event) near the top of the first page.
  • Include a headline that summarizes the event and invites people to read the details.
  • All the most pertinent information should be included in the first paragraph - the five W's. Who is presenting what, where and when? Why should people attend? Include information on how people can attend or buy tickets, locations of ticket venues or website, e-mail and/or box office phone-line information.
  • Additional paragraphs can provide more descriptive information about the event, artists involved and quotes.
  • Use your mission statement or general description of the organization at the end of the press release.
  • If the press release is longer than one page, write "-More-" at the bottom of each page. At the end of the last page, include "# # #" to indicate the end of the release.

The Press Kit

Press kits provide useful background information for members of the press writing previews or reviews of your arts or cultural event. A press kit should be organized in a folder and generally includes:

1) Organization Information (front to back on the left side of the folder)

  • Mission statement
  • Brief organizational history
  • Organizational brochure
  • Feature articles on the organization or lead staff
  • Board list
  • Business card for media contact

2) Specific Event Information (front to back on the right side of the folder)

  • Press release for the event
  • Photos or artwork related to the event
  • Event postcard or flyer
  • Event program
  • Artists' bios, if not in the program
  • Preview articles about the event

Note: Do not include reviews of the event or previous events in the press packet. Most reviewers do not want to be influenced by the opinions of others.


Online calendars

There are numerous websites with online events calendars to use to publicize your event. Here are few:


Daily and weekly papers

Send your press releases to local newspapers. Here are some of the dailies and weekly papers to begin with.


Neighborhood newspapers


Radio

Most radio stations accept a written public service announcement (PSA). Some will take a pre-recorded PSA. Check the website of the radio station you think best matches your audience. Many stations belong to the Puget Sound Broadcasters Association or Washington State Association of Broadcasters . Both organizations list links to their members.


Television

Seattle Channel , the city's municipal television channel, is committed to covering local arts and culture. Art Zone with Nancy Guppy on Seattle channel specifically covers the local art scene.

The continued movement of people to the Pacific Northwest has intensified opposing political ideas that were once unfamiliar to the region. While populations clash over the pros and cons of density, artEAST seeks to feature art that illuminates the individual self in urban spaces. For this show we are asking artists to submit both 2-D and 3-D visual works of any medium and style that subverts historically urban-related visual media. This includes but is not limited to graffiti, advertising, and signs. Situated at the edge of many of Puget Sound’s urban centers, artEAST serves both an urban and suburban population and expects the art in this show to incite conversations about the role art itself plays in an area that is being aggressively urbanized.

Description

We have an opportunity for artists who are looking to rent a small art gallery (20' container space) to showcase their artwork. We will provide the pop up container that can be delivered and picked up where ever they wish and rent the space from a few days to 2 weeks. We believe, as artists ourselves, that space in and around Seattle is expensive and difficult to find an appropriate space of which to showcase art. We feel like with the limited amount of space that a POP up art space would work perfectly for artists that wish to promote and provide good exposure.

How to Apply

We have 'a unique proposal with a cultural aspect' as said by Carol with Public Space Management-SDOT. She advised us to present to you.

We wish to present this to dept, of Arts and Culture, to see if we can work together in developing this idea and applying this to an appropriate art area that is currently being used for artists or for developing a space in which we could start. I understand that Kings Street Station and Plaza are possible opportunities for us. Please advise if we can collaborate on this idea.

Artists are responsible for the delivery, installation and de-installation of their work, and for supplying and insuring all electronic equipment used in their show.

Description

ABOUT TEENTIX: TeenTix is a 13-year-old, Seattle-based non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring equitable access to the arts for all teenagers. Since 2004, our unique, consortium-based approached to empowering teen arts participants has brought more than 75,000 teens through the doors of 75 partner arts organizations in Seattle and Tacoma, making TeenTix the central office of a community-wide effort to connect young people with arts experiences. We offer teens the tools to engage with the arts on their own terms, as leaders, patrons, critics, influencers, audience members, and advocates. Our vision is a healthy community whose diverse civic leaders value, support, and participate in a thriving arts sector. TeenTix is a well-established organization with the heart (and budget) of a start-up. We successfully transitioned from a City of Seattle public program to an independent non-profit organization as of June 2017.
We have three programs that work to overcome barriers preventing teens from participating in the arts: The TeenTix Pass Program – a free Pass for teens (ages 13-19) that provides $5 tickets to all 75 of our participating arts organizations in Seattle and Tacoma, The New Guard: Teen Arts Leadership Society – our teen advisory board that participates in high-level decision-making alongside our Board of Directors while engaging in arts leadership and administration training, and The Press Corps – an arts criticism program for teens that fosters critical thinking, resulting in empathetic and culturally competent writers.
We project our 2018 annual budget around $235,000, with 1 full-time salaried employee, 2 part-time salaried employees, 1 part-time hourly employee, and a host of dedicated teen and adult volunteers. CLICK HERE for our full staff, Board of Directors, Advisory Councils and New Guard Teen Leadership Board HERE. We are looking for a Press Corps Manager to join our staff.

*******

ABOUT THE PRESS CORPS PROGRAM: The Press Corps promotes critical thinking, communication, and information literacy through criticism and journalism practice for teens. Since 2006, some of the city’s most talented professional arts critics from The Seattle Times, The Stranger, Seattle Globalist, Seattle Dances and more, have taught over 550 teens through workshops and intensives focused on arts criticism training, resulting in over 450 reviews of arts and culture events that live on the TeenTix Blog. In 2015, we put the Press Corps on hiatus and worked with task force of community members to address some of the program’s ongoing challenges, including lack of significant racial and socio-economic diversity amongst program participants, and staffing challenges.
The Press Corps will re-launch in 2018. Our updated Press Corps is designed to include racial equity and social justice priorities, and has an explicit goal of disrupting systems of oppression within arts media that have kept marginalized voices out of arts journalism. New program strategies center around accessibility - including tailoring class location, time of day, and cost to a particular teen population, and working closely with schools and TeenTix Arts and Community Partners.
The updated Press Corps Program has three tracks for participation, which will be taught by Teaching Artists. The Press Corps Manager will work with the Teaching Artist to program and facilitate at least one of each of the following tracks every year:
• TRACK 1: Basic Arts Criticism will focus on the basics of arts criticism, exploring topics such as: What is Criticism; Why Your Voice Matters; History and Ethics; Why Arts Writing Matters; What is Arts Coverage; and more.
• TRACK 2: 5-Week Arts-Going and Criticism Practice will train teens in arts-viewing and critique. Teens will attend 5 shows of various genres and publish 5 pieces of responsive criticism (writing, video, or audio). Themes will be curated based on art being presented in Seattle during that time (social justice, feminism, etc.).
• TRACK 3: Year-Round Journalism: Training and Practice in Editing Reviews for Publication will train teens in the practice of arts editing. Five teen-editors will be selected for a yearlong commitment and a 20-hour editing-intensive. The teen editors will work over the next year, responsible for assigning and editing reviews to graduates from TRACK 1 and 2 with the Press Corps Manager.

How to Apply

TO APPLY: TeenTix is an equal opportunity employer and is an anti-racist organization that actively works to identify, name, and correct institutionalized racism within our own organization, and to dismantle systems of oppression that have traditionally kept young people of color out of arts leadership positions. Young people and people of color are strongly encouraged to apply.
To apply, send a resume, cover letter, links/attachments of two writing samples (critical reviews highly encouraged), and contact information for three references to: Monique@teentix.org
We will begin reviewing applications Dec 1, 2017, and will conduct interviews through December 31, 2017. We may choose to conduct a second round of interviews if necessary. We hope to have this position filled no later than January 31, 2018.

In this exhibition, curators Briana Thornton and Ben Dye are working with The Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts to create a public space displaying artworks by multidisciplinary creatives, designers, artists and engineers. The artists featured create works of art using 3D printing as a means of product or reference. The goal of the curators is to facilitate a space where 3D printed art can have a voice among Fine Art.

Layers: The Evolving Art of 3D Printing creates a free and unique experience where audiences can engage with the artistic side of 3D printing and advanced art-making technologies. Artists are inherently curious and the introduction of consumer 3D technology has allowed creatives to explore the uncharted medium of 3D printing. Curators Ben and Briana believe that this medium deserves a place in the world of fine art. They are calling on artists to submit work created by means of 3D printers and/or 3D programs. This can include: sculptures, jewelry, fashion/wearable objects, moving images and animations, and unique objects/installations.

The challenge and goal of the curators is as follows: Art inherently has soul. An artist who creates through analogue means creates work that is a reflection of oneself, society, or at times is an abstract concept that becomes tangible through their creation. Technology and computers are inherently ‘soulless’ or lack depth further than determinable algorithms and mathematics. The goal of this exhibition is to show, argue and conclude that art created via technology can still have depth and meaning that originates from the deliberate intention of the artists.

ELIGIBILITY
Submissions are encouraged from artists working with 3D printers. All work must be original and created within the last three years.

Description

Applications for the 2018 Art in the Park juried show are now available. Our summer exhibition is guided by the incredible beauty and rich history of the Pacific Northwest. We promote and showcase the work of regionally and nationally recognized makers in a broadly inclusive venue. This year we are exploring an exciting and rigorously contemporary approach to the Arts and Crafts Movement aesthetic.

Art in the Park, located in George Rogers Park, is an outdoor booth show open to artists of all persuasions who produce original, hand-made, fine art and craftsmanship, and we welcome in particular contemporary makers who embody the best of the Arts and Crafts movement aesthetic.

Categories
Artists may apply in these categories:
● New Media: New media art is usually defined as a genre that encompasses artworks created with new media technologies, including digital art, computer graphics, computer animation, virtual art, Internet art, interactive art, video games, computer robotics, 3D printing, and art as biotechnology. Artists and makers working under this category are highly encouraged to submit electronic editions of new media work to exhibit and sell to the public in a boutique-style booth display.
● Emerging Artist: We welcome those artists who show significant potential, but have yet to be significantly recognized in their professions. Typically, this applies to a young artist just out of school, but we also welcome people of all ages who are in the very beginning of their careers as artists.
● 3D Mixed Media: Work that combines multiple materials to form an object intended as a work of art. This category includes the use of found objects, use of recycled materials, and assemblage to create new forms.
● Ceramics: Original functional or non-functional works created by the artist from clay, porcelain, stoneware, and/or earthenware. We welcome ceramics artists whose work may challenge the assertion of a functional and non-functional relationship. Not permitted: machine-made or mass-produced work.
● Digital 2D Art: Original work for which the image, or the manipulation of other source material, was created by the artist using a computer. All work must be in limited editions, signed and numbered on archival-quality materials. Not permitted: Traditional photography. Even if taken through the digital process, it must be entered under Photography.
● Drawing: Original compositions hand-drawn by the artist using pen, pencil, charcoal, pastel, ink, wax, crayon, etc.
● Fiber-Decorative: Decorative works handcrafted by the artist from natural and synthetic fiber. Fiber includes basketry, embroidery, weaving, tapestry, papermaking, leather, straw, and fabric. Plastic fiber is also permitted under this category. Not permitted: mass or factory-produced work.
● Fiber-Wearable: Clothing and fashion designers are highly encouraged to apply. Wearables intended as objects of utility, beauty, and art. Not permitted: mass or factory-produced work.
● Glass: Original functional or decorative works that have been handcrafted by the artist by glass blowing, fusing, molding, casting, or kiln forming. Works may be etched or engraved and be of any size. Not permitted: any form of mass-produced work.
● Jewelry: All jewelry must be designed and handcrafted by the artist. This may include jewelry that is made primarily from metals, gems, stones, precious metal clay (PMC), flame-worked beads, clay, wood, fiber, etc. that is made by the artist. All jewelry displayed at the show must have been juried in the Jewelry category. A maximum of 15% of a piece may consist of commercial findings. Jewelers must label their PMC jewelry as such. Not permitted: commercial components (e.g., beads, glass, gems, pearls, metal, or other elements not made by the artist) that are strung or assembled and/or twisted on wire, with no substantial work done by the artist. Commercial casts, molds, mass production, or production studio work is not permitted.
● Functional Metalwork: Functional, non-sculptural work handcrafted from metals with the purpose of being used as a tool. This category includes tools of all persuasions such as knives, saws, shovels, and pitchforks. All sculptural metalwork should be submitted in the Sculpture category. Not permitted: production studio work.
● Painting: Original compositions that are created by the artist in oil, water-based media, and encaustic media. Painters whose work challenges those material assertions are also welcome to submit under this category.
● Photography: Original compositions created by photographic processes that begin with a camera lens. Prints must be made from the artist’s original negative or digital image and be processed by the artist or under his or her direct supervision. The photographic process (including digital alteration, hand-painting, or over-painting, etc.) must be displayed with the photograph. Prints must be signed, numbered, and dated in a limited edition. Prints must meet “archival quality” standards.
● Printmaking: Printed works for which the artist hand-manipulated the plates, stone, blocks, composite reliefs, or screens and which have been signed and numbered in a limited edition. Not permitted: photocopies, giclées, offset reproductions, and machine-produced images are not considered print originals. They are reproductions of the original print and must be labeled as such.
● Sculpture: Three-dimensional, stand-alone works incorporating materials that are carved, modeled, constructed, or cast. Media examples include metal, stone, ceramic, hand-built clay, blown glass, and wood. Sculpture that has a utilitarian purpose, like a fountain, are welcome to apply under this category. If recycled materials are used, they must be modified or used in a way that is different from their original function.
● Woodworking: Original functional or non-functional work that is hand-tooled, machine worked, turned, or carved primarily from wood by the artist. Painted and/or wood assemblages, which are primary pieces not created by the artist, should be entered in 3D Mixed Media.
● 2D Mixed Media: Work that combines more than one medium such as paint, collage, and ink to create original works of art with a one-sided orientation. In order for mixed media to accepted as such, the work should clearly be the product of different surface materials.
BUY/SELL, IMPORTED, OR PRODUCTION WORK IS NOT PERMITTED.

Description

Artifacts of a Journey is an exhibit of completed artworks documenting the process a work of art takes on the road to creation. The exhibit explores the changes we make to our original ideas while creating the physical object, and the byways and cul-de-sacs our minds take while getting there.

In response to the Festival’s Special Exhibit whose media is 3D printing, Artist’s Vision is asking our applicants to compare the process of information transfer that takes place in digital making with the process of thought and action that takes place in physical making. Art is a process, and in this exhibit that process is both the topic and the end result. Artists are invited to submit both traditional and non-traditional artworks that answer this question: what is your process of making and how does your art reflect this journey? Be creative, be playful, and dig into the rich inspiration that is your individual process.

*If your piece is of digital format (projection, film, time lapse, etc.) and requires electricity, please be specific in your submission of the power sources you will need.

ELIGIBILITY
Works Eligible
● Two dimensional work in any medium is acceptable as long as it is smaller than 6ʼ x 8ʼ and can be displayed on the wall using picture hanging rods.
● Three dimensional pieces are eligible as long as they are smaller than 6ʼ (height) x 4ʼ (width) x 2ʼ (depth) and the artist can provide the appropriate sculpture stand for their presentation.
● Wall-hung work can be hung framed or unframed and must include proper picture hanging hardware (no zigzag hardware). Please note: curators will not construct any hanging devices. Work must be delivered ready to hang on a wall.
● Digital works (Film, projections, time-lapse, etc) are accepted but the artist must explain the type of power source needed for their submission. All cords, connectors, etc., must be provided by the artist. All TV’s, monitors, projectors must be provided by the artist. Tables and stands for monitors or to support digital work must be stated by the artist when turning in their artist acceptance form. Because all artworks in the Festival must be for sale, all accepted digital artworks must clearly state what the sale of the artwork will include.

Entries
A maximum of 3 works may be submitted per artist. Entries must be received no later than the date listed on the Calendar below. The Artist’s Vision Juried Exhibit reserves the right to decline any accepted artwork upon delivery if the condition or quality is other than represented in the electronic entry.

Description

You will be working on Murmur, a large-scale, kinetic, wood and steel sculpture. Murmur is based on Grade’s exploration of the Arctic landforms called Pingos. Arctic botanist A. E. Porsild borrowed the word to describe a particular formation of earth-covered ice mounds that dot the Arctic and sub-Arctic landscapes. Working in collaboration with Reilly Donovan, we will introduce an immersive mixed reality component to the sculpture using untethered headsets. We will incorporate spatial mapping, imagery, and sound collected from the source of inspiration along Alaska's northern arctic coast. “I don’t think I have ever been so profoundly moved by a landscape before,” said Grade. Murmur will be exhibited at the Mystic Seaport Museum in Connecticut in January 2018 and at the Anchorage Museum in Alaska in May 2018.

At Grade Studios, we create large-scale site-specific sculptures inspired by changing geological and biological forms and systems in the natural world. The studio’s sculptures are exhibited internationally in museums and galleries, and outdoors in urban public spaces, sculpture parks, and nature. Current and upcoming exhibition venues include the Smithsonian Museum of American Art; the Seattle Art Museum; the Anchorage Museum; the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland; and the Arte Sella Sculpture Park in Trento, Italy.

If you are proficient in woodworking and/or CAD, please apply for an internship. This opportunity is available starting now and continuing through the end of December. We are looking for people who are interested in joining us very soon, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST!

Program Requirements:

Works shall be existing or new works created for temporary installation.
All visual media are accepted.
Content must be G-Rated and suitable for the general public
All materials and consumables required for installations are the responsibility of the artist. This includes hanging hardware, temporary walls, tools, ladders, and any other materials that are required to safely and completely install the artwork.
Artists are responsible for producing and maintaining high-quality work for the duration of the installation, and will be asked to provide repair on request.
One application per artist or arts group
The selection panel is seeking high quality, flexible, and dynamic installations that utilize display windows to their fullest potential and engage with the general public both day and night. In support of Shunpike's commitment to achieving greater Racial Equity across the independent arts sector, submissions from artists of color are particularly encouraged.

Stipend: $500, with no allocation for travel or materials expenses.
Eligibility: Washington State residents over 18 years of age, creating original works, who have not shown in a Storefronts window before.
Deadline: December 4, 2017. Please note that there is no fee for Early-Bird applications submitted by November 27th. From November 28 - December 4 there will be a $25 fee for submissions.

ABOUT THE PROPERTIES

As Shunpike partners with a wide range of properties, available storefronts are quite diverse; and we cannot guarantee any specific property, neighborhood, or timeframe for placement. The Storefronts Manager will match proposals with available spaces at Shunpike’s sole discretion, in consultation with the artist.

All projects will be subtenants of Shunpike, and all subleases will be subject to the terms and conditions of Shunpike’s master lease with the applicable property owner.

The following is a summary of current spaces. At this time, 100% of our spaces are shallow display vitrines.

Neighborhood: South Lake Union

Property Owner: Amazon
Number of Vitrines: 8
Vitrines range from 15″- 30″ in depth, and from 3′ – over 20′ in width, and 5′ – 10′ in height.
Vitrines are not climate controlled and contain ambient humidity and, in some cases, strong sunlight/heat.
Not all vitrines have power, although most do
Lighting is timer-controlled track lighting provided by Amazon. Any additional electrical components must be UL certified, meet fire code, and be approved by Amazon engineers.
Access to Amazon vitrines may require security access and badges arranged 48 hours in advance.
Neighborhood: Bellevue

Property Owner: Meydenbauer Center
Number of Vitrines: 2
Vitrines are 29″ in depth, and vary from 6.5′ – 8′ in width and 8′ – 10′ in height
Vitrines have somewhat challenging access – some through 34″ square hatches and a ladder down into the space
Not all vitrines have solid back walls for wall-mounted or 2-D work, so suspended work is often preferred in these spaces
Lighting is timer-controlled LED lighting.
Vitrines do not have power on site, though there is power nearby

How to Apply

SUCCESSFUL PROJECTS ARE:

Compelling– artistically strong in concept and execution, compelling to a diverse audience, and actively seeking to engage the public.

Viable– agile, adaptive, innovative, and achievable with the time, funds, and spaces available. We love a grand idea, but make sure you can deliver exceptional work with 1month’s notice. Existing work is often a better choice due to these concerns.

Relevant– responsive to, and engaging with, diverse audiences, themes, neighborhoods, and landscapes. Public engagement is a central consideration for all proposals, so please make sure to demonstrate how your project engages a diverse audience.

Examples of successful projects:

Storefronts South Lake Union series, June 2014
Barbara De Pirro (Installation) – Metamorphosis 2015
Karrie Hovey (Installation) – Endangered 2014
Philip LaDeau and Serrah Russel, February 2015
PANEL REVIEW

All applications to the Storefronts program are reviewed by an independent panel based on relevance, viability, community engagement, and creative merit.

Storefronts panelists include professional artists and arts administrators, local business owners, real estate professionals, and community advocates.

Materials required for submission include:

$25 application fee (unless within Early Bird window)
Artist Bio, 400 words or less
Artist Statement, 400 words or less
4-6 representative work samples with related work list
Project Proposal, including:
Brief conceptual statement, 400 words or less
Detailed technical and space requirements
Budget and source of funding (proposals may be self-funded)
Timeline required to prepare your project from date of notification– 2 months or less is preferred
Mock-up, sketch, or detailed written description of the project in a hypothetical space
TIPS and TROUBLESHOOTING

Successful roster projects can adapt to a variety of spaces and communities dependent upon what is available. Be clear about proposal requirements, and understand if they are too restrictive this reduces the chances of being placed.

Shunpike will offer placement to artists with the best match of available resources in the 12-month duration of the roster, at Shunpike’s sole discretion, often with no more than 8 weeks of notice.

It is highly recommended that the proposal be concise, written in direct language, and specifically detail what will be experienced in the storefront space by the general public. Highly conceptual art jargon and overlong descriptions are best avoided.

It is highly recommended to compose your application in a Word document, check the word count, and copy/paste your responses into the application form.

Shunpike is not able to offer technical support for the online application system.

INCOMPLETE AND LATE SUBMISSIONS WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED

Port Angeles Fine Arts Center PAFAC

Job Announcement
Gallery and Program Director

The Port Angeles Fine Arts Center is currently seeking an innovative Gallery and Program Director to curate gallery shows and a five-acre art park, providing high quality art experiences and exhibits for travelling visitors and local community members alike. The Center is less than a mile from the Olympic National Park Visitor’s Center and approximately 18 miles away from Hurricane Ridge. The grounds are perched atop a wooded hill overlooking the City of Port Angeles, the Port of Port Angeles, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Vancouver Island, BC can be seen across the Strait, and Victoria, BC is just a ferry ride away.

The Center operates one indoor gallery with several exhibits annually. The surrounding art park in Webster’s Woods houses hundreds of outdoor sculptures in a wooded setting accessible to the public via a series of self-guided trails. The works of art installed can blend in with the forested surroundings, surprising viewers upon discovery, and sometimes provide stark contrasts to the natural setting. As they are exposed to the elements, the works are also in a constant state of change.

The Gallery and Program Director’s primary tasks will be generating engaging exhibitions and curating both the gallery and the art park. This person will reach out to the local community and connect with regional, national, and/or international artists and jurors. The PAFAC is run by a small staff, which includes an Executive Director, an Administrative Coordinator, volunteers and docents. The Gallery and Program Director oversees the exhibits and curation and will report directly to the Executive Director. The Executive Director works with the Board of Trustees and Board of Directors, the City, and other community organizations on a variety of administrative and organizational aspects of the Center’s operations, including business development, budgeting and human resources. Both Directors collaborate on event programming, marketing, and cultivating educational opportunities through both the exhibits and the art park. Consider this unparalleled curatorial opportunity at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, on the Olympic Peninsula, where the mountains meet the sea. Visit our website http://www.pafac.org/gallery-and-program-director.html for job description and application detail


Gallery and Program Director: Job Description


Nature of Work:
