Joshua Boulet, the mural artist capturing “Frisco: Past and Present,” is featured in the newest issue of Frisco STYLE Magazine!
The mural, located on Main and 4th in the Rail District of Downtown Frisco, colorfully reflects the themes and cultural diversity of Frisco. It is groundbreaking in size, medium (spray paint), and concept. The mural was a collaboration of the Rotary Club of Frisco, Frisco Arts, Downtown Advisory Board, and the Downtown Merchants Association.

PERFORMING ARTS CENTER
Tobin Center for the Performing Arts (TX)
Typically the number of seats in a performing arts center (PAC) is a fixed number, which usually dictates what types of groups can perform. But what if you could create multiple configurations of seats in the same space, even making all the seats disappear into the ground?
This innovative gala lift system is changing the rules for PACs, accommodating various productions, audiences, and arts experiences. . . all in the same space.
