Hot off the press!! The ARTS in Frisco was featured in The Dallas Morning News online and in print in the Metro section on Tuesday August 7th! Frisco Arts is always hard at work keeping the ARTS in the conversation, and we are thrilled to bring positive impact and more eyes on Frisco through our advocacy efforts and innovative partnerships.
In the article, DMN writer Sharon Grisby sheds light on the growing arts scene in Frisco, the staggering number of students enrolled in Fine Arts in FISD, the upcoming Frisco Arts Walk and Run, and our community’s desire for a true home for the arts.

Frisco Arts proudly welcomes The Cliburn as a partner for the third annual Frisco Arts Walk & Run on Saturday, October 6 at HALL Park! It is an honor for Frisco Arts to be recognized as an important outreach partner to support established cultural cornerstones like The Cliburn to grow their audiences in Frisco, where there is a high concentration of young classical musicians.
Representatives from The Cliburn will be on-site to share information about the 2019 Cliburn International Junior Piano Competition and Festival, which takes place in Dallas on May 31 – June 8, 2019 with Former First Lady Mrs. Laura Bush as honorary chair.
“As we prepare to welcome the very best 13- to 17-year-old pianists from around the world to Dallas next year, one of the Cliburn’s top priorities is forming new, purposeful relationships with the region’s innovative arts organizations, including Frisco Arts. We’re looking forward to being at the Walk and Run this fall, to meet the community of Frisco and to introduce the exceptional talent that they can expect at the Cliburn Junior Competition,” said Jacques Marquis, Cliburn president and CEO.
The Cliburn Red Carpet Performances will offer a Steinway grand piano at the Frisco Arts Walk and Run for amateur musicians to perform throughout the day. For the first time ever in Frisco, the Cliburn will present Clayton Stephenson, 2015 Cliburn Junior Jury Discretionary Award winner, with a special performance and meet-
