Each year a local artist is awarded the opportunity to be the “poster” artist for the Art in Your Eye Fine Art Festival. The festival committee buys a work of art from that artist and donates it to the City of Batavia for the city’s permanent art collection. The ninth annual Art in Your Eye Festival will be held on September 21-22, 2013 at the Batavia Riverwalk Park. For more information, please see www.artinyoureye.com.
