May Daze

Dizzying variety of art decks Eureka in spring

Posted: April 25, 2014 at 5 a.m.

The month of May barely contains the whopping May Festival of the Arts in Eureka Springs. The annual celebration of the arts actually begins this weekend with signed copies of the official festival poster being offered during the afternoon and evening hours at Sweet Spring Studio. It ends some four weeks later as the last of several monthlong exhibits close in Eureka's many galleries.
