Plymouth Art in the Park
The second largest art fair in Michigan offers tons of media from artists all over the country, interactive theater and children's mural July 13-15, 2012
Shop around or just appreciate thousands of original pieces of artwork from over 400 artists – including painting, sculpture, ceramics, fine glass, mixed media, woodwork and folk art – at Plymouth's Art in the Park July 13-15, 2012.
For more than 30 years, this art fair has assembled artisans from all over the United States and Canada to display their wares to almost 300,000 attendees in downtown Plymouth.
Get your picture taken in the Mammoth Booth, a modern rendition of a photo booth. Use a remote to take pictures with your friends in front of backdrop, and then see them instantly on a high-definition screen. The pictures are available for downloading and sharing the very next day!
Be sure to check out My Adventure Theater for a unique, family-friendly interactive theater experience. Oftentimes, characters are picked from the audience and dressed in costumes right there while they are narrated through the story. Catch three different shows (Pirate Island, Galactic Voyage and Nottingham Forest), all filled with songs and dancing. There are three to four shows per day.
A children's mural lets kids get creative and let their inner artists loose on a piece of art that will be donated after the festival. At least 1,000 children get to paint on it a year.
Other activities for kids include candle making, henna body art, caricatures, Sandy Candy art, face painting and glitter tattoos. Some creative kids will have their own art on display and for sale around the fountain area in Kellogg Park.
The art fair takes place on the following days and times:
- Friday: 11 a.m.-8 p.m.
- Saturday: 10 a.m.-7 p.m.
- Sunday: 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
