larry yes hosts free art in the park events in portland

It happens in a park or another outdoor community space on a sunny day.  Kids, adults, neighbors, and friends all come out in creative spirit.  Some fun live music happens throughout the day and everybody has a really good time.  

Art in the Park has had installments around Portland for years and looks forward to many more.


Cool video of Art in the Park a few years back.
