Even though November is best known for turkey dinners, assortments of pies and Black Friday shopping, there is no shortage of exciting (and festive) events going on throughout the month. Whether you’re looking to get a head start on your holiday shopping, browse through some art or snap a picture with Santa, DCTA can help get you to where you want to be to celebrate the holidays how you want!
Merging Visions 2018: A Collaborative Exhibit of Art and Poetry
Art and poetry are alike in many ways: they tell a story, show expression and allow people to express their creativity in different ways. The Denton Poets’ Assembly and Visual Arts Society of Texas are bringing these two art forms together in the 2018 Merging Visions Exhibition: Art and Poetry, showcasing both visual art pieces inspired by poetry and poems inspired by visual art. Every day from November 1 through 24 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., ride Lewisville Connect Route 22 to the Medical City Lewisville Grand Theater (100 N. Charles Street) to view the different forms of collaboration. For more information, visit cityoflewisville.com/Home/Components/Calendar/Event/27792/668?curm=11&cury=2018.
