Artosphere 2021

Artosphere, Arkansas’ Arts+Nature Festival, returns May 6-23 with events across Northwest Arkansas. While there will be some changes to the typical festival activities, patrons can still expect dozens of fun art experiences for the whole family to enjoy during the month. Artosphere will still offer a mix of free and paid performances spread across the region.

“On the heels of the pandemic, we thought this was the perfect opportunity to lean into the art in nature element of the festival,” said Scott Galbraith, vice president of programming and executive producer at Walton Arts Center. “Therefore, in addition to our popular Trail Mix, we’ll be presenting in three different cities an outdoor theater piece that will comply with current health and safety protocols.”

Artosphere Photography Call for Entry: Walton Arts Center is conducting an open entry competition to select qualified photographs that support and complement Artosphere: Arkansas’ Arts and Nature Festival.
