Back for a second year, after a wildly successful 2012 debut, the Art on the Greene arts festival opens today and runs through Sunday in the beautiful Richard Greene Linear Park between the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington and Cowboys Stadium.Festival producer Steve Moya, who is determined to build on the success of the inaugural event, said his company has worked diligently for the past year to bring in some of the finest artists in the country. "This year we have assembled 80 incredible artists from seven states that will feature work in 11 different categories."The quality of artwork at the event is on a par with that at Main St. Fort Worth Arts Festival and Southlake's Art in the Square. Art collectors will find outstanding selections in ceramics, drawing, fiber, glass, jewelry, metal, mixed media, painting, photography, sculpture and wood.The park, in the heart of the Entertainment District, is also the home of the Caelum Moor sculptures by artist Norm Hines. Reportedly, more than 20,000 guests enjoyed the festival's opening year, and larger crowds are expected this year.Entertainment tonight features tribute bands for Heart, Journey and Led Zeppelin; Saturday's lineup includes more great tribute bands, along with the Jace Bersin Trio and blues singer Andrea Dawson. Mingo Fishtrap will be the headliner. Sunday's shows feature the UTA Jazz Orchestra and a Santana tribute group.Attendees will enjoy delicious foods from several popular local eateries (Grease Monkey Burgers, Dickey's BBQ, Flamingo Grill) and food vendors with specialties including crepes and other tasty delicacies.Check out the artists and their work at www.artonthegreene.com and get festival details on hours, parking and pets.
