  • Monsterboy LIVES

In addition to a diverse music lineup, a live art component is being added to Artist Row. A spray paint artist will be creating a mural on the former Save-U-More building throughout the festival.

“We’re always looking for unique elements we can bring the Arkadelphia Festival of the Arts,” Arkadelphia City Manager Gary Brinkley said. “In 2021, we brought in amazing performers from Arkansas Circus Acts, and this year, we’ve found a fantastic mural artist who will be creating art right before our eyes. As we look to repurpose the building in a couple of years, we will make sure the mural is part of our final designs.”

The Arkadelphia Festival of the Arts is free to attend.
