This year, we will be partnering with Keep Flower Mound Beautiful and have a focus on eco friendly ways to be creative. There will be live performances, local artwork, a special art treasure hunt, a recycled fashion show, hands-on activities, and more.
If you would like to exhibit your artwork at the event, please fill out the vendor application and return it by Friday, April 17, 2020.

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.
Visual Journal Library
November is the kickoff for the visual journal library located within the Flower Mound Public Library. Participating residents can choose a theme from a list provided at the Library and check out a blank visual journal to fill with images/text/etc. based upon their chosen theme. Once completed, the journal should be returned to the Library where it will become a part of the visual journal library. Residents can come and check out completed visual journals just as they would a library book and “read” or experience a new perspective on a familiar theme. Residents can begin checking out blank journals on November 1.
Traffic Signal Box Art Project
The Town of Flower Mound is turning traffic signal boxes into works of art and artists of all ages are invited to compete for the chance to display their original design on one of the next three boxes. This will be an annual contest, with 3-4 new designs chosen each year to cover a total of 20 traffic signal boxes around Flower Mound. Below are the first three designs that were installed in September. Submissions will be accepted now through January 31, 2020. For more details on the contest and how to submit a design, please visit www.flower-mound.com/trafficbox.
