40th Annual Art in the Park

The 40th annual Art in the Park, sponsored by Geneva Lake Arts Foundation, will be held on Saturday, August 8 and Sunday, August 9, 2020 in Flat Iron Park, downtown Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Visitors will enjoy this great opportunity to view and purchase some exceptional art in a beautiful lakefront setting. Visitors can also enjoy live music and dine in some of the many delightful Lake Geneva restaurants.

 

Art in the Park is a juried fine art show featuring more than 80 distinguished artists exhibiting a variety of media, including clay/pottery, fiber, glass, printmaking, jewelry, metal, mixed media, oil/acrylic painting, pastel, photography, sculpture, watercolor and wood. A “Just for Kids” activities area for “kids of all ages” will be available in the Flat Iron Park Gazebo. Make and take an art piece using a variety of materials. The gazebo is sponsored by the Neal & Dotsy Heffernan Art Scholarship Fund and the Lake Geneva Rotary.

Free parking and shuttle services are available both on Saturday and Sunday,

8 AM to 8 PM from the northeast corner of the Home Depot parking lot, 550 North Edwards Blvd, and from the U.S. Bank, 303 Center Street.  The shuttle runs continuously every 20 minutes.

This year's Art in the Park will be a little different than previous  years. We’ve made changes to help create a safe and friendly art fair  experience. 

For the safety and protection of attendees, exhibiting artists, and our volunteers we are taking the following precautions:

· Social Distancing – attendees and volunteers will be asked to observe 6’ distance. Where applicable, distancing will be marked on floors (Brunk Pavilion and Gazebo).

· Sanitation – Hand sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the park. Sanitizer will be available and used at the Brunk Pavilion and the Gazebo. The Kids and Family art activity at the Gazebo will use extensive sanitizing procedures. As in previous years, surfaces are sprayed and sanitized between use. Art projects this year will be individually packaged. Work tables will be distanced with some extended to the surrounding lawn area. Markers and pens will be sanitized after each use.

· Face Masks – We are strongly recommending wearing face masks and will have disposable masks available for the public. All volunteers will be required to wear face masks. Gloves will be worn where applicable.
