MARIETTA - Marietta City Schools (MCS) is partnering with the Marietta Arts Council and the City of Marietta to launch “Art in our Parks,” a city-wide art installation that celebrates student artwork in neighborhood parks, presented by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. 

An extension of the Marietta Arts Council’s popular Fence Art Gallery, “Art in Our Parks” aims to bring more art to more people, foster a deeper appreciation for creativity and self-expression, and provide a platform for MCS students to showcase their talents.

“We are excited to launch ‘Art in Our Parks’ and partner with the city and the Arts Council to bring this initiative to fruition,” said MCS Chief Impact Officer Kim Blass. “This is more than just a partnership; it's a celebration of our young artists' vision and creativity. Each piece of artwork that will dot our parks is a testament to their talent and their unique perspectives on the world.”

Beginning in July, residents and visitors can view MCS student artwork at the eight participating Marietta parks. The Marietta Arts Council will maintain a regularly updated list of parks and participating artists, indicating the location of each student's art piece. “Art in our Parks” promises to bring the community together to appreciate our students' talents. Join us in supporting the next generation of artists in this city-wide celebration of art.
