DELRAY BEACH, FL – Artists in the Park will be returning for their 47th season in beautiful downtown Delray Beach and using two venues once again. The debut for the new season will take place on the lawn of Old School Square at the corner of Swinton & Atlantic Avenues. The Delray Art League’s Artists in the Park is South Florida’s longest running outdoor fine art show and sale. Participating artists work in a variety of mediums including watercolor, oil and acrylic. The shows also showcase photography, sculpture, and mixed-media artists.
A percentage of all sales from Artists in the Park are donated to the Art Education Fund which awards scholarships to local art students, sponsors local art programs and provides art supplies to various organizations. Some of the recipients of donations have been FAU Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts & Letters, the Milagro Center, Old School Square, Delray Beach Sister Cities, and Palm Beach Habilitation Center, all totaling $13,000. With a down economy, and many non profits receiving less grant funding, the Delray Art League takes great pride in knowing that they can make a difference in the community.
