  1. Everything seemed to Gallery on Oh's name on it. Why was that? They certainly took over the space in front of the Atlas and Joy of Motion too.

  2. Gallery O was a major sponsor of the Festival. They underwrote the expenses for the 14th Street Stage and the bands, plus the costs for the Art Cars and the owners to travel to the Festival, the booths for the artists on the block, and many other features of the Festival.
    They also paid for the sponsor party the night before the Festival.

    Any more questions?

  3. The main or "title sponsor" of the Festival was Kaiser Permanente, not Steuart.
