The Cottonwood Art Festival, a biannual event in Richardson, is happening on May 4-5, 2013 – and you won’t want to miss it!
This free event features over 240 artists from all over the nation. Artists are picked by a jury – more than 1400 applied! The artists then compete in 14 categories, including photography, Sculpture and Wood, Glass, and mixed media. You can see a list of the artists here.
Stroll through the festival and check out all the amazing art…but there’s a lot more than art at this festival!
There will be performances from local bands as well as food and a chance to relax in the shade at the Lakeside Courtyard.
Kids will also have plenty to do – be sure to take the little ones to the ArtStop Children’s Area. Kids will enjoy some hands-on artistic time, with a chance to create a hat from scrap, work with plaster, add to a collage, or try their hand at sculpting with a real potter’s wheel!
The Cottonwood Art Festival is happening on Saturday, May 4th from 10AM-7PM (live music continues until 8PM). The following day, Sunday, May 5th, you can attend from 10AM-6PM. The festival is located at Cottonwood Park (click here for the map).
