Organizers nix Parkersburg art exhibit over COVID-19 concerns

PARKERSBURG — A public art exhibit scheduled this weekend at City Park has been canceled and rescheduled, an organizer said.

The Art of Freedom was moved to September over concerns with the rising number of coronavirus cases in Wood County, organizer Wendy Tuck said.

Local artists, organizations and students arranged to show what freedom meant to them by using a variety of media.

“We hate to cancel, but by fall we should feel safer and freer to come out and enjoy being together again,” Tuck said.

More information on this event is available on the Facebook Community Events page for Artsbridge.
