Congratulations to The Unexpected: Festival of Murals in Fort Smith, Arkansas, and Josh McIntosh for winning the Community Tourism Development Award at the 43rd annual 2017 Arkansas Governor’s Conference on Tourism.
The Unexpected is an arts and culture initiative that brings world-class art to downtown Fort Smith, Arkansas. The 10-day festival, held in September of 2016, brought world-renowned international artists, such as Alexis Diaz, to the area to work their magic.
These artists have gifted the downtown area with so much life and vibrancy. The murals are truly larger than life!
