Loring Park Art Festival to welcome art lovers July 30 and 31, 2022
(Minneapolis, Minn.) April 19, 2022 – The Loring Park Art Festival, a family-friendly Minneapolis tradition for more than 20 years, returns this summer, with a line-up of 140 juried artists, including more than 45 artists new to the festival. The two-day event is set for Saturday and Sunday, July 30 and 31, 2022 in Loring Park.
“Last year’s festival saw record numbers in both attendance and sales,” said Pat Parnow, festival founder. “This year proves to build on that success. Artist applications for our 140 spaces totalled 370 and were especially compelling this year. Festival attendees will be able to explore the talents of newcomers and beloved favorites who have been with us for years.” Featured artists will be announced in May.
The jury strives to present a rich variety of styles and art forms, including jewelry, printmaking, glass, textiles, photography, clay, painting, drawing, sculpture, wood working, ceramics, mixed media and more.
Artwork will be available at a wide range of prices, making it possible for art lovers to take home one-of-a-kind treasures. Family events, food vendors, live music, and unique entertainment will be announced closer to the time of the event.
