There is a great cultural enrichment activity going on October 6th and 7th in Richardson, TX called the Cottonwood Art Festival. This event happens twice a year, featuring works from the nation’s top visual artists. Now in its 43rd year, this prestigious show is rated the 5th best art festival in the United States, and is the premier fine arts event in North Texas.
There will be food, vendors (start thinking about holiday shopping!), live bands, and TONS and TONS of art for viewing and for purchase!
