The Art + Film Festival starts June 10, 2012 and runs every Sunday evening to July 15th. Discover art created by a Eureka Springs artist then watch a classic film under a blanket of stars in Basin Spring Park, located in the heart of downtown Eureka Springs. Right before the film starts, selected Eureka Springs artists will show their work on the big screen; allowing the audience to experience their work on a very grand scale. The artist will introduce the selection and be on hand for a short question and answer session immediately preceeding the film.
Eat before the show. Afterward, relax and enjoy yourself in one of Eureka Springs best accommodations.
