The Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History presents the 15th Annual Art on the Lawn, an outdoor exhibit to be held Saturday May 7th, 2011 on the beautiful grounds of the historic Sutherlin Mansion. This juried art show will feature some of the region’s finest artists and crafts persons whose works will be for sale. Mediums displayed include painting, printmaking, stained glass, pottery, jewelry, photography, and mixed media.

There will be food for sale, free music and a recycling art activity for children and their families to make and take home with them.

This year the Art on the Lawn will participate in the new event, Art on Main, an art and crafts and music event that will encompass Danville’s historic downtown district and include events at the Danville Science Center and Danville Public Library. Art on the Lawn award winners will be automatically juried into next fall’s Art on Main juried art show. The overall theme of Art on Main is recycling – Green.

Ride the trolley to get to all the events going on this special arts day! 

Bring the whole family, have a picnic on the lawn, and enjoy some of the best art in the region. You are sure to find something that you can’t live without!
