Fayetteville, Arkansas is known as a great arts destination with many public works from large murals to little-known gems tucked in the nooks and crannies. We recently wandered around Fayetteville taking in the natural beauty and snapped a few shots of some of our favorite art pieces. If you haven’t explored the art scene in Fayetteville, add that to your bucket list! Check these out:

1. Traffic boxes (pictured above) are often overlooked, but an initiative by the Fayetteville Police Department has spiced them up in an effort to discourage graffiti and add beauty to the town.  The box was painted by the Fayetteville High School Art Department and is at the intersection of Arkansas Avenue and Dickson Street by the Kappa Sigma house on the edge of the University of Arkansas campus.

In the last few years, First Thursday Fayetteville has become a highly anticipated, must-see monthly event drawing more than 15,000 people downtown throughout the season.

On the first Thursday of each month from April to October, First Thursday Fayetteville transforms the city’s historic Downtown Square into a vibrant arts district, featuring the work of more than 40 visual artists, live music, street performers, food and drink, and children’s activities.

The upcoming First Thursday, on October 6, will round out the end of the 2016 season with some great musical acts and activities, celebrating the cool fall weather.
