Art Around the Mound
Cultural Arts and Murray Media want to flip the gallery and create an outdoor art museum for people to enjoy while going on walks around the neighborhood. Create some sidewalk chalk art, decorate a tree or bush outside your house or business, or display artwork in the windows or on your lawn. Email Krissi.email@example.com with images of your work to have them posted on the Town Cultural Arts webpage, and be sure to place it in the comments on the Best of Denton County and Flower Mound Chamber of Commerce Facebook pages. Use the hashtag #DentonCountyStrong and they will share some of them in their upcoming magazines and on social media!
Visual Journal Challenge
Flower Mound - you have been challenged to tap into your creativity and turn your experiences today into a visual journal! Just as artists have done for decades, let’s document this moment in history using art as our form of communication. You are challenged to take any blank sketch book, journal, or old book and fill it with drawings/paintings/scribbles/photographs/writing/collage/etc. based on how you are making your way through these unfamiliar times. Staff from Flower Mound Cultural Arts will be uploading videos onto this youtube channel that will give more detail about the project as well as techniques that you can use when creating your visual journal. When the journals are completed, bring them to the Flower Mound Public Library where they will become part of the visual journal library. Visitors will be able to check them out just as they would a library book and experience, through the visual, another’s perspective on a shared moment in time.
If you have any questions, please email Krissi.firstname.lastname@example.org. Now, let’s make some visual journals!

All artists are encouraged to apply and special consideration will be given to those that work in eco friendly mediums or have subject matter related to the environment. Please join us for a celebration of the arts!
Art Treasure Hunt
Flower Mound Parks and Recreation and Keep Flower Mound Beautiful have teamed up to bring you an art treasure hunt! The Flower Moundster, Keep Flower Mound Beautiful’s environmentally conscious monster, has hidden some treasure boxes in some of the Town parks. He has placed some recycled and reusable items in the boxes, and whomever is lucky enough to find one of them, is challenged to create a unique piece of art from the items inside. For treasure box location, clues, complete rules, and photos of art from some of the treasure hunters please visit www.flower-mound.com/treasurehunt.
