Otzman Those who worked on the Belleville Area Council for the Arts Community Art Fish Project paused for a photo with the fish during the intermission of the Music Lakeside concert last Thursday at Horizon Park. Members of the council present also got in the picture along with those who painted a fish. BACA president Mindy Russell had the idea for the fish art and Neil and Thelma Griffin put it into motion, along with Jean Morris and Lou Nyikon.
