We polled our partners, regional CVBs and PPAs, and the results are in!  Our intention in launching this project was to identify and recognize those who have done excellent work in the arts in our northern PA region.  Nominees were not required to be members of the PA Rt 6 Artisan Trail or the Rt 6 Alliance.  Those who are members will be linked to their pages.  (If you are interested in becoming a member: Rt 6 Artisan Trail Membership)

The list is, of course, only a glimpse into the creative work being done across northern Pennsylvania!
