Visual Art Demos at the Piccolo Spoleto Outdoor Art Exhibition

Nestled within the perimeter landscaping and scattered among the native trees, shrubs and flowers of Marion Square, you'll find the artists and their tents -- if there's a pop-up shower, simply run for the closest tent -- you're sure to be welcomed! Rain or shine, you'll find the fun, creativity and camaraderie of this 16-day art show entertaining and engaging. Over 80 local artists will not only be selling various pieces, they will also be doing demonstrations every day after the first weekend.
