The Marietta Arts Council is setting the stage for the second annual Mountain to River (M2R) TrailFest this Saturday, May 11. The M2R TrailFest celebrates public art with an all-day festival featuring a variety of art installations including fine art, photography, sculpture, live performances and the return of the popular mural exhibits around the Square.

Opening ceremonies will be held in Atherton Square starting at 11 a.m. to kick off the event. Event maps with the schedule of events will be available along the trail route, as well as at the Marietta Welcome Center located at 4 Depot Street.

With inclement weather forecasted for the weekend, Marietta Arts Council Chair Bonnie Reavis reminds art & outdoor enthusiasts, “don’t let the weather dampen your spirts. M2R TrailFest is only the kickoff of our annual public art celebration. The murals, M2R Fence Gallery, and sculpture garden will remain installed for everyone to view long after the rain washes away.” 

Artwork will remain installed between 60 days to one year. 

“The show will go on even if Mother Nature brings a little rain,” says Stokes O’Shields, Marietta Arts Council Secretary. “Participating artists and the planning committee have worked so hard; we can’t let it be a wash out. Fortunately, the merchants around the Marietta Square have embraced this event and offered to host performances and art installations requiring protection from the rain.”

Those planning to attend should follow the Marietta Arts Council’s Facebook page for weather updates and changes in venues at
