Arts Panels

Keeping the Arts in the Conversation

We believe in the value of arts and culture to individuals, communities and society as a whole. From the economy and tourism to health and veterans, we're keeping the arts in the conversation with our Frisco Arts Panels. Each panel explores the intersection of arts and another sector, featuring special guests from the community.
