The Cottonwood Art Festival will take place May 7 and 8 at Cottonwood Park. It will be the first festival since 2019 after organizers canceled the past two years during the pandemic.

According to a city press release, van der Hart is known for his work that includes layers of nostalgic imagery. These images will be incorporated into the festival poster, merchandise and marketing graphics. They will also be showcased in a booth located in the center of the festival, according to the press release.

The festival, which is run by the City of Richardson, is a juried art exhibition featuring work from the nation’s top visual artists and takes place the first full weekend in May and October each year.
