Frisco Arts is honored to have been named “Best At Winning New Customers” by Frisco STYLE Magazine!

Look for this month’s issue of Frisco STYLE Magazine to read the feature article with Executive Director Tammy Meinershagen, Ambassador Team Lead Will Odom, and President Julie Shipp.
What makes Frisco the No. 1 Best Mid-sized city to move to? If you’re an artist or arts enthusiast, you undoubtedly have the arts high on your list. You may have even felt out of place in “Sports City USA,” but Frisco is beginning to change its tune.
On Wednesday September 19th, the Frisco Economic Development Corporation launched the “See Yourself in Frisco” ad campaign in the Wall Street Journal, highlighting various aspects of Frisco’s core identity with “I am” statements by leaders in the community. Charlotte Jones Anderson, EVP and Chief Brand Officer of the Dallas Cowboys, Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford, and Frisco Arts Executive Director Tammy Meinershagen were featured in creative videos and on the EDC social media to give a picture of Frisco.
The arts are an economic driver, and Frisco is home to a large community of aspiring musicians, dancers, actors, visual artists, filmmakers, and more. Through initiatives like these, the arts community is not only visibly represented, we are a defining element of Frisco. We thank the Frisco EDC for including Frisco Arts in this unique campaign, and together with your support, we will continue to advocate for Frisco to be known as a destination for the arts, as well as sports.
The “HeART for the Arts” editorial was published in Jennifer Sheehan’s “Best of Collin County” Magazine this month and summarizes WHY we do what we do. At Frisco Arts, we do not believe that the arts are just for the elite; we believe the arts are for everyone. As Picasso once said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” We are all born creative, and nurturing our inner artist is not only healthy for each individual, it’s beneficial for the collective whole.
