Walls are for keeping people out but in Eureka Springs, things are a little different. The Eureka Springs Art Wall is a creative way of bringing people together. Known as a Top 25 Arts
Destination in the nation, Eureka Springs is home to many talented artists. The Eureka Springs Art Wall attracts people, encourages them to explore the area with a new perspective.
The art wall is a public display of artistic works by local artists and is a project of the Eureka Springs Mayor’s Arts Council and the City of Eureka Springs. This year’s theme, The Spirit of the Ozarks features original art and fine art photography that capture the essence of the Ozark region.
