Art in the Hollow

Art in the Hollow, the annual East Side art festival that takes place in Swede Hollow Park in Dayton’s Bluff, returns on June 2, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event is organized by the Friends of Swede Hollow. 

The Friends anticipate over 50 visual and performing artists, many creating works on site — glass mosaics, murals, sculpture, painted furniture — will be participating in the festival. Plein air (open-air) painters will seek to capture the beauty of the deep, lush ravine, with its ponds and stream, its variety of flora and fauna. There will also be a sculpture contest where visitors can vote for their favorite sculpture. 

In addition, The TAP, a local social and arts organization, will also have a variety of live performers from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with many talents — music, spoken word and more. Many of The TAP’s performances will take place near the tunnel at the south end of the park. The TAP will also have restrooms, free water, comfortable seating and a mobility shuttle  running regularly during the day. For questions about the mobility shuttle, call 612-396-4863.

Parking will be available in the lot across the street from Minnesota Music Cafe, near the parkís entrance at Payne Avenue and East Seventh Street. There is also an entrance with a parking lot off Greenbrier Street and an entrance with street parking at the corner of Maury Street and Bates Avenue.
