Asheville Art in the Park 2010

Asheville Art in the Park Returns to Pack Square June 12th, 19th and 26th

Asheville Art in the Park will be providing access to some of the finest artists in the region this June as the event continues with its summer series. The event takes place on three consecutive Saturdays in June and October. Muddy Knees Design and Production is proud to once again offer local artists the opportunity to connect with the public in Asheville‘s Pack Square Park. There will be nationally known artists vending at this event and the best part is they are local to our area. The mission statement for Asheville Art in the Park is simply “A local art market giving back to the community by donating 10% of all sales to local non profit organizations. “ This is an event created by local artists to give Asheville’s great talent a place to showcase their work.

Asheville Art in the Park will no longer close South Pack Square for the event. The original concept for the market never included closing South Pack Square. Now, after some community input, the city requires South Pack Square remain open Monday-Saturday. Asheville Art in the Park will be held on the North side of Pack Square and include the raised lawn area know as the Grassy Knoll. The new park is receiving the finishing operational touches and Asheville Art in the Park will continue to work with the city of Asheville to bring the best professional artist events possible to it’s center.
