Featuring 214 artists from more than 28 states showcasing their work in 12 categories, the Part City Kimball Arts Festival, one of the oldest and largest arts festivals in the West, will be held Aug. 3-5 on Park City's historic Main Street.

Ceramics, drawing, fiber, glass, jewelry, metalwork, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking sculpture and wood showcases will all be on display.

In addition, the festival features last year's 2011 Best of Show returning artists, tie dye, ceramics demonstrations, a scavenger hunt, face painting, booths, a student art show, music, food venues and more.

Citywide recreation and entertainment options and restaurants participating in Taste of Art are also available around town.
