Art in the Park is a FREE community program created to offer arts programming to the children in Marion County, WV. It is our hope that in addition to arts education, we can inspire the next generation of community activist by showing children how they can make a difference in their neighborhood through art. We work with communities to select projects that will improve the overall look of the area, creating beauty from blight. We make every effort to recycle, reuse materials, and give old things new life. For a list of events check out https://www.facebook.com/ArtsMarion/
