Now in its 44th year, the Cottonwood Art Festival is the fifth best art festival in the United States and is the premier fine arts event in North Texas. The twice-a-year event generates more than $2 million in art sales annually. The Cottonwood Art Festival is a juried show. Approximately 1,400 artists will submit work for the 2012 festivals. Jurors will select 240 artists to exhibit their museum-quality paintings, sculptures, ceramics, jewelry, fiber art, fine glass, woodwork, mixed media and photography. All art must be for sale.
Brave Combo of Denton, winner of two Grammy Awards and nominee of seven Grammy Awards, will perform at the Richardson festival on May 5, 2012, from 5:15 - 8 PM.
This year's ArtStop Activity Stations include Crazy Cool Caps (kids create their own over-the-top hat), Throwin' Mud (kids can play in the mud at this activity station with Masta Potta, Mr. Kirby), Canvas Classics (kids can be an artist by painting their very own canvas painting), Bag Full of Color (kids can "go green" while using their imaginations to paint canvas backpacks), Petite Pottery (kids can paint their own petite pottery), The Big Picture (kids can leave their mark on Cottonwood Art Festival by painting a piece on the Monster Mural).
