This year's American Founders Bank Woodland Art Fair will have a similar setup to those of recent years but the feel will be different, or so hopes Amber Scott, marketing coordinator for the Lexington Art League, one of the organizers.
"We went through a rebranding to match the atmosphere of the event," Scott says. "The Woodland Art Fair would be nothing without Woodland Park, so we want to celebrate that."
It will be celebrated with signs and posters in softer colors and fonts evocative of summer afternoons, and features such as balloons and hay bales for people to sit on instead of benches.
Of course, the calling card of the event is art, and Scott emphasizes the 200 juried artists, whose works range from visual art to utilitarian items like copper cookware and furniture.
"I don't think that anyone realizes you can interact with art while serving a salad," she says. "Our presenters really give you a way to have art in every part of your day."
When it comes to interaction, Scott highlights the presenters of the fair.
"The partnership with Parks and Rec, American Founders Bank and the Art League is a great example of what can happen with a non-profit, government and corporate partnership," Scott says.
The two-day fair annually attracts about 60,000 people, a figure that should be attainable with mild, sunny weather forecast this weekend.
"It goes right with our theme of a perfect weekend in the park," Scott says.
