Volunteers prepare for Art in the Park

Volunteers with the Ashley County Arts Association paint a tree mural on a fence in the former Crossland Zoo area of Crossett City Park in advance of the association’s Art in the Park event. The free happening will be 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, July 17,  in the zoo area, and will feature local artist booths and art displays, as well as a creative corner for children. For a $1 donation, attendees will be able to place a paint handprint on the tree mural. In addition to art demonstrations, raffle prizes, and food and drinks, the event will also be host to a poetry slam at 1 p.m. (VERSHAL HOGAN/News Observer)
