Paradise City Marlborough's food has been winning its share of awards for years. Enjoy a delicious meal while visiting the show, or take a dessert break in the Paradise City Café. Casual seating is available in a specially designated area of the exhibition hall.

Listen to masterful classic jazz in the Café while you sip coffee, nibble a European pastry and take a break from your shopping.

Peter & Alexa Smarsh, Face Pin Special Exhibit!
'Face to Face':
  From Portraits to Selfies

Faces are distinct as fingerprints, unique as snowflakes. They are how people recognize us from one another. Faces communicate and inform without words.

At Paradise City Marlborough this fall, you'll see faces in paintings, sculptures and photographs, on clocks and chairs, embedded in jewelry and vases. These faces engage, confront, entertain and provoke, all filtered through each artist's style and perspective.
More info coming...

For your listening pleasure, Paradise City presents cool jazz, swing and standards from a different band every afternoon in the Sculpture Café from noon to 4pm.

How Do They Do It? • Meet the Artists at Paradise City

Walking the show at Paradise City, you may come across an artist braiding leather for the strap of a handbag, sketching out a concept for a commission, carving wood or sewing trim on a jacket. This is one of the little pleasures of Paradise City. Not only do you meet the artists and talk to them about their work, but you also may get a glimpse of the technique and thought process behind each piece of art or craft.

Gift Wrap Gift wrapping!
...with our signature paper and ribbons for your holiday purchases is available at the coat check station. 100% of your voluntary contributions support the Marlborough Public Schools Music Association which provides students with music scholarships, programs and cultural activities.
