The show is held in beautiful Palmer Park and is adjacent to some of the city's best neighborhoods. Residents are professionals with huge homes and great disposable income. Our experience is the shoppers like more traditional images, and afro-centric work also does well. Don't be afraid to bring larger work as many people have substantial historic homes.
The show winds around a pond and runs adjacent to the historic log cabin. Artists are encouraged to get out of the tent and create installations that enhance their work and interact with the natural beauty of the park.
The "entertainment" is art projects and artist demonstrations. Patrons are invited to get their hands dirty. All of this helps to contribute to appreciation and sales.
Why you should be here:

Welcome to the Smash the Narrative project. The purpose of this project is to use art to promote public discussion around major political and social issues. Every two years we award a prize for art relating to a specific topic.
This years theme is titled “You can’t paint that!“. The topic is taboo and censorship. This is an important issue at the moment with governments, educational institutions and big tech companies taking it upon themselves to decide which ideas can and can’t be discussed. We would like to encourage artists to think about what it feels like to be told they should avoid expressing certain ideas or alternatively the necessity of limiting creative and intellectual expression to avoid causing offence.
Deadline: December 31, 2019
