Art in the Park, the annual juried outdoor exhibition of fine art and fine craft, is Lawrence's premiere arts event and is sponsored by the Lawrence Art Guild. Featuring the highest quality work by many area artists and craftspeople, as well as continuous musical entertainment, food vendors, and family fun, Art in the Park typically attracts thousands of people. It is the Lawrence Art Guild's primary fund raising event allowing the Art Guild to donate money to Douglas County High School Art Teachers each year.
Art in the Park is located in South Park, 12th and Massachusetts, at the South end of beautiful downtown Lawrence and is always the first Sunday of May. The event is open free to the public from 10am to 5pm. Rain cancellations are announced on KLWN 1320 am or on the Guild's cell phone after 7am the day of the event.
