Art In The Park

A HUMAN FLOURISHING INITIATIVE

Art in the Park gives the gift of creativity and self-expression.

This event aims to bring out the beautiful part in everyone. The emotional reward of utilizing one’s own individualism is at the heart of this event. The community spends a Saturday afternoon painting, enjoying the wonderful Northwest Arkansas weather, and sharing a meal. Having both individual qualities and personalities are what makes us people. Serve wishes to celebrate that with people who often times chose food and shelter over recreational activities.

If you would like to become involved in Art in the Park in Northwest Arkansas, we would be honored to have you join us.  There are simple ways that you, your community, or your business can become involved in this local human flourishing effort.  

“ART IN THE PARK HAS BEEN THE PERFECT PLACE FOR MY FAMILY TO FEEL THE FREEDOM TO DREAM AGAIN.”
