Bigger and Better for 2012
August 9, 2012 (Milwaukee, WI) Join us at the Milwaukee County Parks Mitchell Park Domes, 524 S. Layton Blvd. August 17th–19th for the 2012 Domes Art Festival. This year’s festival will be Bigger and Better. People who have had the opportunity to attend Art Festival over the past few years can attest to the overall cultural experience, artistic activities, great people, the famous lobster BLT, and most importantly the great artwork.
We are fully expecting this year, being that this is the festivals third, to have an even larger turnout and be an even greater success. We are moving the festival from the back of the Domes where it was in the previous years to a stunning new plaza in front of the Domes where it will be more inviting for local community members to enjoy.
With a little something for everyone; the art festival will feature hand-selected fine artists, on grounds Plein Air painting competition, children’s craft and activity area, great food from local restaurants including the famous lobster BLT, and great performances by local bands like I’m Not a Pilot – voted best Milwaukee indie-rock band in Shepard’s Express
This one of a kind event will take place on Friday, August 17th from 12 P.M. to 8 P.M., Saturday, August 18th from 10 A.M. to 8 P.M., and Sunday, August 19st from 10 A.M. to 4 P.M. at the Mitchell Park Horticultural Domes in Milwaukee. Tickets to the festival are $8 and include parking, admission to the festival, and admission to the Domes.
In 2011, the 2nd Annual Milwaukee Domes Art Festival raised over $20,000 for the support of the Mitchell Park Conservatory while awarding $10,500 to participating artists. We look forward to exceeding these numbers at the 2012 Milwaukee Domes Art Festival. For more information go to countyparks.com or call the Mitchell Park Domes at (414) 257-5600.
