Hundreds of unique pieces of art fill a popular Joplin park as a part of an annual festival.
The Kiwanis Club of Joplin hosts the 4th Joplin Arts Fest at Mercy Park.
The two-day event supports more than 50 local and national artists and vendors selling hand-made pieces for the public to buy.
Food vendors and kids activities also welcomed hundreds to the event, with this year being the biggest turnout yet.
“Artists from around the country that have shown up here to show their art off and so forth. So really excited about that. And you know just the ability to come out and buy fine art and use stuff to beautify your home and office, just really kind of fun to have right here in Joplin,” says Joplin Arts Fest Co-Chairman, Marshall Hogue.
Hogue continues to say this is an important part of supporting the arts culture in the community.
