Art in the Park, an event to recognize the art feature established at Laurel Park last summer, is set for May 7.
The free event will run from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and include live music, food and drink trucks, and a pop-up art shop with original artwork for purchase.
The event will also feature Hammock Hollow, an interactive art installation paying homage to the boating and sailing history of Lake Lanier. Hammock Hollow combines seats made from recycled sailcloths with a whimsical, wavy design. The structure also includes additional hooks so individuals can attach their own personal hammocks.
A ribbon-cutting for Hammock Hollow will be held during the event as well.
Art in the Park is a collaborative event hosted by Vision 2030 Public Art and Hall County Parks & Leisure.
The park is located at 3100 Cleveland Highway in Gainesville.
