Now in its 57th year, Boise Art Museum's Art in the Park has cemented its place in the community as the premier event for artists and artisans to showcase their skills. This year will feature more than 230 artists, with 53 new artists in attendance. A wide array of styles and mediums will be for sale, including jewelry, photography, woodcrafts, glass and metalwork.
Alongside the mesmerizing works of art, 44 different food vendors will be serving up grub so attendees can rest their feet and gnaw on snacks from Crepe Tyme, Boise Fry Company and Kanack Attack Catering. On Saturday and Sunday, there will also be a Children's Art Tent, where a variety of arts and crafts projects will be available for aspiring Picassos. Throughout the event, live local music from artists like The Random Canyon Growlers and James Orr will emanate from the Gene Harris Bandshell. Adding to the creative ambience on Saturday evening, the Jazz Collective will perform from 4:30-5:30 p.m. and Boise Philharmonic will play from 6-8 p.m. in BAM's Sculpture Garden.
There will also be opportunities to win a variety of prizes when you turn in your official Art in the Park purchase receipts. Event organizers will also give away Idaho Lottery prize tickets for a chance to win Art in the Park dollars.
