More than 80 artists and 15 performers will feature their work at Fred Fuller Park tomorrow and Sunday at the 14th annual Art in the Park. The festival will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday with a full line-up of art demonstrations, musical performances, storytelling and other activities.

“We’ve added a second stage this year, the Back Woods Stage,” said Nancy Rice, recreation supervisor for Kent Parks and Recreation. “We wanted to feature more acoustic performances.”

The event is expected to draw a crowd of 18,000, Rice said.

Artists and vendors will sell art from various mediums, including jewelry, photography, pottery and ceramics. Art on display will be judged for cash prizes ranging from $50 to $200.
