Well, hello there!

Congratulations! You've used the NFC keychain to get to this hidden page on our website! On this page, you'll learn how to reprogram the keychain so that it links to your artist website or virtual business card. It's a really handy way to build your contacts list without passing out business cards. You know where paper business cards end up...right?

Gerald Kurten

First, meet artist, entrepreneur, and humanitarian, Gerald Kurten. Gerald created and gifted you this beautiful glass keychain! In addition to creating glass art with his business Whippoorwill Dreams, he's also the President of the San Marcos Art League and a huge supporter of Inspired Minds Art Center. We have a unified vision of the future of arts in Hays County, and big, beautiful things are in store! When you see Gerald at the festival, be sure to thank him for all of the time and effort he puts into supporting local arts.
