Flower Mound's inaugural Art in the Park Festival is scheduled for Saturday, May 8, 2021 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Heritage Park, 600 Spinks Rd. This year, Town will have a focus on eco-friendly ways to be creative. The festival will include live performances, food trucks, over 45 art vendors, a "find Bob Ross" scavenger hunt, hands-on activities, a community mural, and much more!
Bring your blanket and some chairs and plan to stay all day - there will be something for everyone to enjoy!
Flower Mound has heART is a community art initiative that focuses on the creation of public art centered around the themes of kindness, love, and inclusivity. The first heART work that will be created under this initiative will be at the Art in the Park festival in the form of a community mural!
Residents were asked to submit designs based on the aforementioned themes, and we received over 20 beautiful submissions. A winning design was chosen, and was created by Beth Dilly - an art teacher and a member of our cultural art commission. Beth will draw her design onto an 8 foot x 12 foot wall that was built by our local Summit Club. Then, the mural will be painted by local groups from our Flower Mound community during the festival. Upon completion, the wall will be transported to Parker Square where it will be on temporary display.
Be sure to come out and cheer on our painters as they make this design come to life and create our first of many heART works that reflect the kindness and love that live in our community.
