If you haven’t been to Artpark this summer, you must add this place to your “summer fun” list. Artpark is known for its excellence in performing & visual arts. This summer was jam-packed with fun-filled activities for both families and adults such as: Sundays in July, Free Family Saturday’s, Tuesday in the Park, and Coors Light Wednesdays. Featuring bands such as the Lowest of the Low, Jane’s Addiction, Sheryl Crow, Steve Miller and more. Tickets ranged from $0 to $15.
However there is still time. Tuesday in the Park will be be finishing its spectacular summer line-up with The Machine, Performing Pink Floyd on August 28th at 7pm and The Charlie Daniel’s Band on September 4th. General Admission is only $5.00 (you can’t beat that price).
The last concert of the summer is being performed by an American singer- songwriter, musician and artist who does not need an introduction, Bob Dylan. Tickets for this September 6th event are $40.00 (for general admission lawn seats). From previous experience, there is not a bad seat in the house and you can work your way up to front row.
If you are either a kid, art-adorer or nature-lover, don’t miss Emerald Grove. Emerald Grove is a whimsical, interactive, art installation created by Sculptor Extraordinaire, Jesse Walp. This exhibit features interactive elements such as: bridges, windmills, sculptural seating, an earth mound, a sundial and large pod-like huts which stand 15 feet tall.
