PLYMOUTH ART IN THE PARK | JULY 9 10 & 11, 2010

CELEBRATING 31 ART INSPIRED YEARS!

PLYMOUTH , MICHIGAN – Celebrating 31 years of art, cuisine, and entertainment, Plymouth Art in the Park returns on July 9, 10 and 11. Turning the streets of downtown Plymouth into a whimsical color palette, the event, which is directed and managed by mother and daughter, Dianne Quinn and Raychel Rork, offers the best local, American, and International artists.

What originated as a small group of 30 artists sharing their passion for art in Plymouth’s Kellogg Park in 1980, has since transformed into Michigan’s single largest art festival. Art in the Park Founder and Director, Dianne Quinn, reflects on 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.” Quinn continues, “In 1980, I envisioned an art show in Kellogg Park and the seed was planted. In 2009, after 30 art inspired years, my vision for Art in the Park hasn’t changed, but it has most definitely flourished.”

Over 375 artists (80 being new exhibitors) from around the United States and throughout the world will be featuring thousands of original pieces of art including paintings, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, fiber, fine glass, woodwork, mixed media, photography, and folk art.

Children artists ranging in age from 7 to 17 will also have their art on display for purchase. From practical to surreal, witty to the extravagant, there is bound to be something for everyone.

My Adventure Theater , an interactive, family friendly theater experience for the entire family; no experience necessary. Held in Kellogg Park, characters are chosen from the audience; costumed on the spot and narrated through action-filled, laugh-packed adventures complete with songs and dancing. Live productions of Pirate Island and Nottingham Forest will be featured.
