Park City Kimball Arts Festival Runs August 5-7

The 42nd annual Kimball Arts Festival will be held August 5-7, 2011, in Park City. It draws artists from around the country, and attracted some 49,500 people last year. Officials expect attendance to rise by a few thousand this year.

“We’re showcasing the most talented artists in their respective fields to bring to our annual Arts Festival and raised the bar on programs like Taste of Art and Festival After Dark. As the largest three-day event in Park City during the summer, we work year-round to come up with innovative ways to create a multi-sensory experience for all of our patrons,” said Robin Marrouche, Kimball Art Center, Executive Director.

The Park City Kimball Arts Festival serves as the primary fundraiser for the Kimball Art Center each year. Proceeds from the Festival enable the Kimball Art Center to provide, free of charge, year around art exhibitions, gallery tours, monthly “Art Talks” and to offer art education outreach to teachers, students and the greater community.

See the festival website for details.

The Deseret News has this article about the festival. Below are Excerpts.

After a successful inaugural year for some new programs and the largest turnout in its history last year, the Park City Kimball Arts Festival will kick off its 42nd year on Aug. 5 with even greater expectations.

The “Relevant” artist-in-residence and “Taste of Art” programs are both returning for their second years after success last year.

Other activities of note are the “Festival After Dark” programs that include performances in partnership with the Deer Valley Resort Concert Series, and KSL will set up a booth activity to give kids a glimpse into the world of broadcasting. The top 10 Best of Show festival winners from last year will also be featured in an exhibit to remind festival goers of last year’s offerings.
