Beardstown Main Street will be hosting its first Beardstown Arts in the Park event on Sat., May 10 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the city square.
Main Street is looking for local artists who would be willing to set up a display of their work. They would love to showcase local talent and the variety of medias such as pottery, jewelry, photography, painting, sculpting, etc.
In addition, they will also be doing a street painting. Main Street will be selling 6’ x 6’ sections of 3rd Street to organizations, businesses, families, and anyone who would like to participate. The cost will be $35 per square, with no more than six people painting per square. This fee is to pay for the paint and supplies, with any additional monies collected being donated to the Beardstown Swimming Pool Fund. What a great way to display your business/ organization logo or just enjoy a family day in the park.
There will be live music in the bandstand, food, and plenty of art for sale. There will also be face painting for the kids and artists demonstrating their work as observers walk through the booths.
If you are or know of someone interested in participating, please contact Megan Zimny at 217-491-1715 or Dennis Reiley 217-320-2288.
