Robin Marrouche is the Executive Director of the Kimball Arts Center and highlights some of the festival’s activities.
The three-day festival is set to offer a newly programmed multi-sensory artistic experience for its anticipated 45,000 attendees, including visual-art exhibitions, live musical performances, cuisine-related activities, art-focused film screening, child-specific art activities, as well as its largest fundraising event, The Park City Kimball Arts Festival Opening Night Gala and Auction.

After reviewing almost a thousand submissions, the Park City Kimball Arts Festival jury selected more than 230 to showcase their work in 12 categories – ceramics, drawing, fiber, glass, jewelry, metalwork, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and wood. This year’s line-up includes young emerging artists, past Park City Kimball Arts Festival “Best In Show” winners and multi-year veterans, and many internationally- and locally-based artists.
