STARKVILLE, MS - The Starkville Area Arts Council is excited for the next Art in Public Places Exhibit, the annual Winter Showcase. The Exhibit will kick-off with a reception held at 5:30 on November 14, 2019, at the Greater Starkville Development Partnership in downtown Starkville. Featuring 18 talented artists and 40 works, the exhibit includes paintings, sculpture, photography, and more, inspired by the winter season.
As part of SAAC’s AiPP series, works may be listed for sale. SAAC collects and pays sales taxes on behalf of the artist for any work sold, and the artist keeps 80% of the proceeds. This Exhibit will be on display until January 13 in the lobby of the Greater Starkville Development Partnership in downtown Starkville.

STARKVILLE, MS -
Starkville Area Arts Council has set the date for the annual Cotton District Arts Festival in the historic Cotton District for Saturday, April 18, 2020. This will be the first time in several years that CDAF does not coincide with Super Bulldog Weekend, which is scheduled for April 9-11. However, #CDAF2020 will immediately follow the Starkville Main Street Association King Cotton Crawfish Bowl on Friday, April 17.
“Based upon a publicly circulated survey, with Easter falling on April 12 and Double Decker on April 25, the only viable option for #CDAF2020 is the third weekend in April,” says Executive Director John Bateman. “The unanimous Committee decision to move CDAF considered our ever-increasing need for volunteers, requests from all of our vendors, and support from the community as a whole.”
CDAF is an award-winning Starkville classic that allows artisans to compete, showcase, and sell their work. With more than 175 artisans competing for entry, admission to each year’s Festival has become more and more competitive. Sponsorships and volunteers are extremely critical to keep CDAF admission free for the public and booth fees among the lowest in the state. CDAF Sponsors provide $1,000 or more of financial support to the festival and a large number of other Supporters contribute to CDAF, making it a truly impressive event. If you would like to help support CDAF 2020, additional information on sponsors, sponsorships, and volunteers, can be found at www.cdafestival.com/sponsors--volunteers.html.
