The 2011 Park City Kimball Arts Festival is scheduled to feature 220 established artists from all across both the U.S. and Canada.
The event will showcase artists selected from 860 applications. This number represents a significant increase from the entries received last year.
Erin Linder, who is the Kimball Art Center – Director of Exhibitions was quoted. “This year, the applicant pool was highly competitive due to the increase in applications and range of talented artists. The jury remarked on how difficult it was to evaluate such an impressive array of work. I am pleased with the jury’s results. The artists invited to participate in the festival, many of whom are new comers, offer creative, diverse and interesting work. There will be an exciting artistic mix at the 2011 festival.”
