Art in the Park is underway
It’s time once again for the City’s Art in the Park! This year’s site is City Market Park at 3rd and Main Street. Four local artists have been commissioned to do site specific temporary artworks on display through the end of September. There will also be musical performances in the park on six consecutive Wednesdays (11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.) starting May 17th. Art in the Park gives local artists the opportunity to gain experience in the public realm before moving on to larger, permanent public art commissions. Because the artworks are temporary, the artists are allowed a much larger range of designs and materials which might be unsustainable if the works were permanent.
