Arts In The Park
Arts In The Park is Marion’s premier juried outdoor art festival which takes place in July. For the last seven years, artists and artisans have exhibited their work in Bicentennial Park, opposite the Marion Art Center, at the corner of Main and Spring Streets, Marion, MA 02738. It is our pleasure to host this event featuring many creative and talented artists of our region. The Art Center is open during this event where the Cecil Clark Davis portraits can be viewed in the auditorium as well as the current exhibitions in our galleries. The festival provides live music, and a food booth during the day, as well as a raffle of donated exhibitors’ work. Proceeds benefit the Marion Art Center.
