Three initiatives were approved for the Huntsville Festival of Arts during the General Committee meeting on Wednesday, including the waiving of park permit fees.

The proposed art programs include:

  • Group of Seven murals painted on recycled canoes during the week of June 21-26, at River Mill Park, where they will remain exhibited through the summer.
  • Kareen’s Wellie Garden, where exhibits of painted boots with flowers planted inside will be featured in public places such as River Mill Park and pergola Gardens from June 1 to October 1, in memory of Kareen Burns, who passed in 2017.
  • The return of the painted piano in front of the Algonquin Theatre, at the Civic Square, that the public can play at their leisure from May 20th – Sept 30th.

The HFA hasn’t been able to initiate these programs for the past 2 years due to COVID-19 and are exited to be able to celebrate their 30th anniversary with these and more events coming this summer.

Dan Watson of the HFA expressed that the arts initiatives “can enhance the visitor experience and contribute to the cultural vibrancy of the Town.”
