Art in the Park
This September, the annual Art in the Park returns to historic Marietta Square with loads of creative outdoor fun for the entire family as well as several new features this year like the Artcar Palooza and a 3-D Artist Exhibition. The Chalk Art Competition will also be back.
Art in the Park takes place Labor Day weekend. This outdoor event boasts plenty of enjoyment for all ages with a large Artist Market, the Children’s Art Alley, famous Painted Pots, historic sites and nearby dining.
The event will also feature a Chalk Art Competition. All ages are welcome to participate, as are professional level artists. Participants will have the opportunity to “Chalk it up!” with dynamic chalk art works in randomly selected sidewalk squares. These works will be judged at the end of the day and will remain on display throughout the festival. – interested participants can preregister (contact Emily Ryals, 770-528-1444x16, firstname.lastname@example.org). The competition is co-sponsored with the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art, and everyone is welcome to compete.
In the spacious Artist Market, attendees this year will be delighted by the range of artists new to the festival who offer a high level of fine art in media including jewelry made from fine metals and precious stones; ceramics; paintings in watercolor, acrylic, oil and pastel; woodworking; glass; photography; textiles and much more. Of course, everyone’s favorite artists from past years will be back too! In fact, the 175 artists showcasing one-of-a-kind works and commissions represent the best of the best at Cobb County’s only annual fine art show. The affordable original artwork is offered in a variety of price ranges and styles.
Art in the Park is also excited to about the addition of a 3-D Artist Exhibition and an Art Supply Round-Up for local non-profits.
Since 2007, the event has been honored as a Southeast Tourism Society Top 20 Event, is ranked 81st in the nation in the Classic and Contemporary Craft Shows by Sunshine Artist Magazine and has also earned awards from the Southeast Festivals and Events Association and the International Festivals and Events Association.
