Founded in 1962 the Art in the Park is the Premier Outdoor Art Exhibition and one of a few platforms where art exhibitors interact and sell their works directly to the public.
Annually hosted at KZN Botanical Gardens in Pietermaritzburg, the public is exposed to a rich tapestry of mediums, ranging from all painting mediums to photography, glassworks, paintings in sand and now selected craft pieces.
A school art competition called ‘through the eye of a child’ where school kids’ creativity is tested through drawing representations of a chosen topic has become a standard feature of Art in the Park. High end crafters also provide a variety of pieces to choose from.
Art has been identified as a tool to overcome barriers amongst a diverse range of people. It has the ability to inspire and relate across all ethnic groups and cultures. Therefore this event has been identified as a medium to advance social cohesion.
