Minneapolis, MN—The Loring Park Art Festival celebrates its 11th year of bringing art to one of the cities’ oldest and finest parks. This FREE two-day event takes place on Saturday, August 7 from 10-6 and Sunday, August 8 from 10-5, 2010 near Oak Grove Street and Hennepin Avenue in Loring Park across from the Walker Art Center.
Festival goers will enjoy two days of art provided by 140 artists that have been juried into the festival to assure high quality artwork in all media. Art at the festival includes; oil painting, watercolors, handmade paper, sculpture, textiles, photography, glass, ceramics, jewelry, mixed-media, wood, printmaking and more. Within these categories will be a variety of styles from traditional to abstract in a variety of price ranges with the goal being "something for everyone."
This festival is recognized nationally by publications such as the Sunshine Artists Magazine and the ArtFair SourceBook. The ArtFair SourceBook says of the Loring Park Art Festival, “This is an up-and-coming show in the Twin Cities...many patrons who attend prefer it...because it’s an easier show to see, more compact, and its quality is more consistent.”
In addition to art, visitors will enjoy family events, food, music and unique entertainment around the walking paths and duck ponds of Loring Park—an idyllic setting for an outdoor art festival. Also this year, Metro Transit will provide a FREE convenient art hop shuttle between Loring Park Art Festival, Powderhorn Art Fair and the Uptown Art Fair.
