PLYMOUTH (WXYZ) - Sunday is the last day to enjoy Art In The Park in downtown Plymouth.
Park hours are from 10am - 5pm.
More than 400 artists from 32 states around the country and about 100,000 people will flock to downtown Plymouth for the 34th Annual Art In The Park event. It is one of the oldest and largest art events in Michigan.
Art In The Park promises a sensory filled experience for all ages, featuring live entertainment, interactive displays, children's activities and a variety of cuisine. Setting the bar for quality and originality, Art In The Park artists will showcase a variety of art, including painting, sculpture, ceramics, glass, fiber and fashion, wood, photography, mixed media and more.
Art In The Park is considered by artists, and fairgoers to be a must-see event, and Plymouth, with its wide range of restaurants and retailers and the ever popular, Kellogg Park, provides the perfect backdrop.
This family friendly event will provide a variety of activities for children including the Children's Mural, sponsored by St John Providence Health System. Located in Kellogg Park, this Art In The Park staple will encourage kids to step up and add their artistic mark to the mural which will be donated back to St John Providence Park Hospital in Novi following the event.
New to the event this year is The "Duck Tape® Rolls Across America Tour." A fun, interactive experience, this display is housed in a 31-foot, bright green "Duck Bus" - that allows Duck Tape enthusiasts to see the latest and greatest from this product. Fairgoers will be invited to make a craft item using Duck Tape, see one-of-a-kind Duck Tape outfits, including one from the "Project Runway" - Duck Tape Unconventional Materials Challenge, and photo ops to snap the perfect memento.
Directed and managed by mother and daughter team, Dianne Quinn & Raychel Rork, Art In The Park is a family affair. Quinn, celebrates the event, "I feel very fortunate to have successfully stumbled into one of the greatest occupations, and that my daughter chose to work with me, making it OUR event! I am proud of what this brings to Plymouth. I take great pleasure in being able to bring a creative experience to all who attend, volunteer, and participate in the show."
