Art in the Park 2020 was a success!
Bowling Green Arts Council, in partnership with the Wood County Park District, promoted Art in the Park 2020 online; an event showcasing the talents of regional artists and performers, plus children’s activities, in the virtual version of Simpson Garden Park. The works of 19 local artists were viewed in over 10 U.S. states and 15 countries. Many thanks to all the wonderful artists who made this event possible! Art in the Park was sponsored by the BG Arts Council, with additional support from BGSU Galleries and College of Musical Arts. To view images of the event, CLICK BELOW.
