Celebrate the Arts at Concerts in the Park

Shea GuntherMaher

From musical theater actors and visual artists to philharmonic musicians and installation art by Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento’s thriving arts communities will unite in Cesar Chavez Plaza for an interactive celebration of creative work.

Join us at Concerts in the Park on Friday, July 15, for Art Night presented by Professional Arts Leaders of Sacramento (PALS). Mix and mingle with Sacramento’s creative talent, including:


You have seen their performances and displays around town, and now you have the chance to visit with local artists face to face and experience art in-the-making. Here’s a peek at what’s in store…

Experience Solar Poppy, Crocker Art Museum’s large-scale installation blending art and technology designed by Sacramento-based artist, Anthony Padilla. Solar Poppy collects and stores energy from the sun during the day to power the sculpture’s glowing LED lights and USB charging ports. Have a seat and charge up while you enjoy some tunes.


Dress up in colorful stage costumes and hop in a photo booth for some theatrical fun, presented by Capital Stage.
