Stick a pin on your Calendars folks! Art in the Park Calendar begins January 19th, 2013 at Central Park.

Art in the Park provides artists with a much needed venue that gives them the opportunity to display and to sell their art.

Art in the Park first took place on 12 September, 2009. During this ground breaking event, 10 local artists were hosted and live musical entertainment was featured.

On 26 March, 2010, the evening of the national Belize Band Festival, one of the biggest Art in the Parks was held. Since media from Belize City was on hand for the Festival, they also aired a segment on Art in the Park on national tv.

Because of this amazing initiative on the part of Ms. Gray and ICA-Corozal, the talented artists who participate in this showcase are receiving the recognition they deserve. Apart from the national attention that Art in the Part received in March, at the same time the Corozal Child Arts Collective was also established. This new feature provides a permanent exhibit space for young visual artists.

Art work from this event has been on the road to Orange Walk and Belize City. Plans are to continue to promote artists through exhibits throughout the country and abroad.

This beautiful concept is slowly changing people's attitude toward art. The event now hosts as many as 30 artists and artisans, who are acquiring a new found sense of respect and attention.

Art in the Park had been eagerly embraced by Corozaleņos, and many are learning to appreciate art that never had the opportunity previously. Art is alive and well in Corozal Town!

In Corozal- Art In The Park

Art in the park is an event that has been gaining popularity in Corozal Town as it exposes the talent of many artists. The idea is one that was conceived by Photographer Debra Wilkes Gray, the now director of the Corozal House of Culture. In 2009 Gray presented her idea to the Institute of Creative Arts at a Corozal Committee General Assembly. Of course, members of the committee embraced the initiative and immediately the work began with the first Art in the Park being held on September 12th 2009. To date Art in the park has become one of the main attractions in Corozal both for locals and tourist. And if for some reason you have not been to one of the events then you have an opportunity to do so tomorrow when another edition of Art in the Park is scheduled to take place at 7:00pm.

Art in the Park has brought much richness to Corozal as talented artists are exposed, at the same time receiving the recognition they deserve. Without a doubt the event provides a permanent exhibit space for young visual artists.
