“Birds of a Feather” by artist Lynn Beeler is among the artworks for sale at Art in the Park

This year there will be food and drink available for purchase. Also, there will be music through the afternoon. The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity will once again be offering free art projects for the children. One of the artists, Douglas Skarecky, has also offered to make quick, free sketches of children.

Art in the Park is presented by the Newport Beach Arts Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3). The foundation’s goal is to support and expand the role of the arts in Newport Beach. Their biggest job is to provide funding to help underwrite the Sculpture Exhibition in Civic Center Park, with the works of art changing out every two years. The Arts Commission is already thinking ahead to Phase IX.  Phase VIII was installed in June and will be up for two years. Phase VII will be coming down in June 2024 and replaced by the sculptures in Phase IX. So, the Sculpture Garden needs ongoing support and funding.

Admission and parking is free. For more information, visit www.newportbeachartsfoundation.org.

Newport Beach Civic Center Green is located at 100 Civic Center Drive, Newport Beach.
