It seems that municipalities are all getting into the act! Art attracts crowds and crowds eat, spend money, etc. etc. Good for the local economy! McKinney for example invites local artists to show their work at several venues on a repeat basis. Their farmer's market features an artist each Saturday as well as inviting other artists to be on site showing their work. The second Saturday of each month, the old courthouse in downtown McKinney is surrounded by artists demonstrating their talent and selling their artwork. Frisco has encouraged visual arts for many years with Art in the Atrium - a long running exhibit held at the Purifoy government building. Now Plano has impressive plans to encourage the arts in its downtown area which has been revitalized with upscale restaurants and condominium complexes conveniently located near the dart rail station.
