The opening is set for 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., April 14, at Riverside Park – site of a colorful, new, “Ice Pops” sculpture by artist Craig Gray. The family friendly ribbon-cutting will offer a live band, dance performances, interactive games, food trucks and arts and crafts activities. Mini-tours of ArtAround will be offered, with free shuttles provided.
Ice Pops and nine other works were selected from a field of 70 entries, officials said. ArtAround adds three new locations this year – the Roswell Cultural Arts Center, Hembree Park, and Leita Thompson Park near the Arts Center West Entrance – and will be extended by three months to run from April 14 to March 2019.
