Did you know?
Artstreet was the brainchild of the Northeastern Wisconsin Arts Council (now Mosaic Arts, Inc). The original planning committee met for the first time in April 1981, more than a year before the actual festival. They wanted to offer a weekend experience in downtown Green Bay that was so vibrant and memorable for so many people that the arts will gain importance in public and private life all year round.
