Art in the PARC art show will be benefiting Artists with disabilities
‘Art in the PARC’ proceeds to benefit PARC’s Inspired Arts Program. PARC’s eleventh annual ‘Art in the PARC’ event will be held at the Duke Energy corporate offices on Friday, November 2, 2018. Highlighting artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities, PARC’s ‘Art in the PARC’ offers guests the opportunity to meet the artists, enjoy food and drinks, purchase custom paintings, jewelry, pottery, candles, fabric sculptures and much more.
This free local art show benefits the Inspired Artist Studios at PARC, a program at PARC where artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities can fully express their talents. Dozens of emerging artists with special needs will have their unique pieces of art on display and available for purchase at the event. All artists receive 50% of the proceeds from the sale of their one-of-a-kind creations. There will also be a special performance by PARC’s Inspired Choir starting at 6PM that will take place in the lobby of Duke Energy’s corporate office.
“St. Petersburg certainly embraces its artistic side, and PARC is honored to be a part of such a vibrant and culture art scene”, said Karen Higgins, President & CEO of PARC. Duke Energy, located in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg, is hosting ‘Art in the PARC’ once again and PARC is so grateful for their continued support.
