Art in the Park Celebration

March 30 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The shimmering ocean and rolling hillsides of Crystal Cove State Park have long inspired artists to paint, write, photograph, compose, tell stories, dance, and sketch. Be it a watercolor, a dance, or a musical composition, artists from different genres continue to be inspired by the beauty of the park and the spectacular landscapes, breathtaking scenery, and abundant gifts from nature.

On Saturday, March 30 from 10am – 4pm in the Crystal Cove Historic District, come join Crystal Cove State Park and Crystal Cove Conservancy for a spring art show and Art in the Park a day filled with activities that celebrate the integration of art and nature through workshops, performances, and activities.
