This year will be the Goodman Legrand Museum's fourth annual Art in the Park. This year will be even bigger and better, but it can't grow without you. Don't know what is event is? Here is a little introduction, and how you can help. 

The Goodman LeGrand Museum is a historic home right here in Tyler. Located near the downtown square, it is unbelievable to find this gorgeous 153-year-old home. Right off of North Broadway lies a nine-acre park with the Goodman LeGrand home settled right in the center. Hidden in the middle of this growing city you can find a place full of history, mystery, and beauty.

On April 14, 2013, you will be able to tour this historic home and experience an art exhibition unique to the city of Tyler. There will be music, fun for the kids, and especially a showcase of East Texas' best fine art talents. A mixture of ceramics, painting, sculpture, drawings, photography, and so much more will fill the Goodman LeGrand park that Saturday afternoon. The artists will be working and teaching at their booths along with showing their newest and greatest works. For purchase or just for appreciation, those in attendance will see the wealth of talent that Tyler has to offer.

Last year there were more than 30 artists showing off their best. This coming year there is a need for more artists to help make this event even bigger and better. If you are an artist or know one that would like to participate, please sign up. It is a free event for the patrons and the artists. So, there is no excuse not to be a part of this great day of art, music, and history.

Contact Patricia Heaton, the Goodman LeGrand Museum's curator at or give the Goodman a call for more information.  Also, you can check out this event in the City of Tyler brochure.

Make sure to come out and enjoy this free event with your friends and family. Make sure that if you are an artist, or know one, that you don't miss out on a chance to show your pieces of art to all of East Texas.
