All Kinds of People by Dawn Wohlford-Metallo and Lisa Mahar The use of found objects carries an up-front challenge to artists.

The impetus behind the Annual Manual for the Arts is that there has been no single resource for the arts in the Quad Cities, whether you're a consumer of the arts, one of their practitioners, or someone who wants to become one of their practitioners.
