BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - New fees for Bakersfield's artists wanting to take part in the First Friday Artwalk are now in place.
Artists will now need to purchase a permit to reserve a spot within the Arts Council of Kern's designated area.
The new fees are meant to help sustain and fund First Friday's with liability insurance, staff time and promotions.
For some artists, the new fees have a few interesting results.
"This is probably the fourth or fifth time I've done it and it did seem a little more organized this time, but it also so far seems like there's a few less people setting up," said artist Ryan Holdcraft.
Struggling artist can look at the Art Council of Kern's programs to help them pay the fee.
