Historic McKinney enjoys a thriving professional arts community of several hundred professional artists, including painters, potters, sculptors, photographers, wood carvers and turners, mixed media artists, women’s fashion designer, a writer, and even a puppet maker.
On November 9 and 10, 50 of these artists will open their workspaces to the public during MAST, the annual McKinney Artists Studio Tour. The artists warmly invite you to attend, to discover some of their quirks, muses, and creative processes. More than 900 guests enjoyed this fun, free event last year. We expect an even larger crowd this year, as we fete both our amazing local artistic talent and the 10th anniversary of the Tour. Mark your calendar to attend!
MAST serves to educate the public about Historic McKinney’s robust, welcoming arts community, and to build connections between them, the artists, and sponsors. Plan to cap off your visit with a yummy meal or cocktail at one of our sponsors, perhaps right on the downtown Square!
