In many communities,
summer brings an exciting event, “Art In The Park”. You’ll notice it popping up in a variety of cities, some small, others large.
In Las Vegas, my hometown, Art in the Park occupies several blocks. Art lovers pour in from everywhere. Many arrives in buses, it’s a “big event”.
Recently my husband, myself and a friend attended Art In The Park in a city considerably smaller than Las Vegas. We strolled around under the shade of large old trees admiring the artwork.
I prefer a smaller venue, there’s time to leisurely explore. You can linger over any work that catches your attention. There’s time to meet some of the artists, who if asked, are often happy to discuss their work.
There was food, drinks and snacks available, but who could tear themselves away from the art?
