About ART IN THE PARK, Worcester
The Art in the Park exhibition was created to present public art to a broad community, promote works by artists from the region, enhance outdoor spaces and enrich lives. Since its premiere in 2008 this annual exhibition of 20-25 large-scale sculptures has been organized by a dedicated group of volunteers and community supporters in conjunction with public art curators. Art in the Park was one of six projects to receive the Gold Star Award in 2009 – a statewide award given by the Massachusetts Cultural Council to recognize exemplary cultural programs funded by a local cultural council. Art in the Park continues to be exhibited in Worcester’s historic Elm Park where it attracts an ethnically and socio-economically diverse audience of 10,000 people.  Art in the Park 2011 is presented by Art in the Park, Worcester in partnership with the Urban Arts Institute at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, the City of Worcester’s Parks Department and ArtsWorcester. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Worcester Arts Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
