Unpaid Artists Upset | Suwannee Hulaween “Accounting Errors”

Artist Justin Casey alleges Suwanee Hulaween festival has refused to pay multiple artists.

Hate to see it.  My favorite festival, Suwannee Hulaween, admitted to committing “accounting errors” which resulted in an unspecified amount of unpaid artists.  This troubling revelation was first outed in a post from Justin Casey, the artist overseeing the absolutely breathtaking installations in and around Spirit Lake.

Hulaween Festival organizers released a statement in response the following day:

Hulaween unpaid artists

This is a surprising development for fans of the festival, including myself.  A situation involving unpaid artists is always disappointing.  We will be following this story closely; stay tuned for updates.
