Martinez Arts Association presents the 49th annual Art in the Park on Sunday, August 19, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm. Over 50 artists are expected at this free community event. Come and enjoy fine arts and crafts created by local artists, along with live music, food trucks and beverages including wine and beer.
Art in the Park is the MAA’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Don’t miss this year’s silent auction that raises money to support the arts in local schools. We are featuring an Art Flock of fabulous lawn flamingos, created and donated by participating artists.
There is plenty of free parking in downtown Martinez with a golf cart shuttle from the Farmer’s Market area at the Starbucks plaza.
Founded in 1968 as a nonprofit organization, the MAA organizes and participates in many community events throughout the year. Our goal is to encourage art culture and education for local youth. Fundraising proceeds provide scholarships to graduating seniors as well as art grants for elementary through high school teachers. The Martinez Gallery is also a branch of the MAA, and 15% of gallery sales are donated towards the art grant program.
