his event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Art in the Park is the largest art fair in mid-MO and has been put on by Columbia Art League for 61 years! Come join us for this family-friendly event during the first weekend in June.
Someone said: I thought it was all paintings. No, we cried, it is paintings and much, more more. Need a new coffee mug, you’ll find it. Gorgeous scarf required? Check. Space in your yard begging for a stylish sculpture? We have it. Fabulous frock needing fabulous necklace? Choices galore. Wall behind your sofa needs a colorful painting? Go home with three. Gifts needed? Oh, you lucky, lucky shopper.
After you’ve shopped ’til you’ve almost dropped, grab a cool lemonade or some ice cream and be awed by a magician or a aerialist dancer. Got kids? We got stuff to keep them amused: making art at the Kid’s Art Spot, buying something for their own collection at the Young Collector’s Tent, designing a tie-dye t-shirt, having their faces painted. And, as if that wasn’t enough, entrance to the festival is free. Think of it as a gift from the Columbia Art League to you. How can you thank us, you ask? Easy. Buy art!
