On May 9, 2020, Marietta will debut new and more expansive public art installations and performances. The City of Marietta’s Mountain to River (M2R) Trail brings communities together unlike any trail Marietta has seen before. Join the Marietta Arts Council in Atherton Square along the M2R Trail for a special opening ceremony for the festival. Throughout the rest of the day, find a variety of celebrations of art along the trail, at Lewis Park, Atherton Square, and Brown Park. Join us at 6:30 in Brown Park for a special closing ceremony.
From Lewis Park, through the Marietta Square, and ending in Brown Park, M2R TrailFest invites attendees to enjoy the parks, trails, and all that the city of Marietta’s artistic talents has to offer in an immersive day of public art. The juried art event will celebrate the thriving art scene in Marietta and pay homage to the historical and cultural landscape of the entire city, all while encouraging new and returning visitors to visit again. The festival will reflect and honor Marietta through dance, music, performance, installations, as well as the return of the popular fence gallery, sculpture tour, and expanded mural exhibition.
