announced that applications and guidelines for artists and food producers
to participate in the statewide Indiana Artisan program are now avail-able

Governor (Mitch) Daniels and I are committed to

local artisans, this project allows the state to promote Hoosier businesses,
said Skillman. I encourage Indianas many talented artisans
to apply to be a part of this unique initiative.
