Hollyhock's Grand Opening
Art created onsite by local artists will be the highlight of Hollyhock’s artful grand opening event on Sat., March 25, from 12-4. The festivities will also include live music, lawn games, souvenir photos, and food and wine tastings from local establishments.
Look for the Artists Pavilion located in Fields Park, one of Hollyhock’s three new amenities, that visitors can discover during this event.
Inside the Artists Pavilion four accomplished Frisco artists will demonstrate their painting and drawing skills, with their completed works to be unveiled at a second event.
The artists include:
- Puja Grover, an internationally exhibited artist who paints portraits, landscapes and abstracts in oil and acrylic.
- Teresa Krieger, who creates plein air paintings in impressionistic and expressionistic styles, inspired by travels throughout the world.
- Inita Steele, an accomplished artist and Frisco ISD fine arts teacher whose mixed media techniques include photo transfer.
- Lucy Tolkunova, whose realistic fine art drawings in graphite and charcoal have won numerous awards, including Best of Show at the recent “Shade” exhibit in Frisco.
Children can express their creative side with hands-on arts and crafts inside Fields House, another new amenity being unveiled during Hollyhock’s grand opening celebration.
Face painting and chalk art, in front of Hollyhock’s six fully furnished model homes on both sides of Fields Park, are sure to wow event guests of all ages.
Food and drink offerings will include delicious treats from Frisco favorites Ruthie's, Easy Slider, Steel City Pops, Coolhaus and Extracts. Eight 11 Place will provide wine tastings for guests 21 and up.
The main stage will feature jazz standards from the Rob Holbert Group and '80s feel-good music sung by the Trent and Pearson Middle School choirs. Don’t miss the high-energy of self-taught speed painter, Gabino-Gino Martinez, who completes large-scale, colorful canvases right in front of audience’s eyes.
Also in Fields Park, guests can take a virtual reality tour of the bike trails at Hollyhock and its next-door neighbor, Northwest Community Park.
The festivities are the perfect way to celebrate the grand opening of a new Frisco community that has already made its visual mark on the local landscape. Hollyhock's towering Corten steel entry monument on Highway 380 and bright red hollyhock flower sculptures on the Teel Parkway bridge signal entry into a world of artful living, welcoming visitors and guest alike. A shimmering 19-foot dandelion sculpture, Auri Agoseris, is the focal point of Dandelion Park and part of Hollyhock’s 20 acres of recreational amenities inside the community.
We hope you'll join us and see why so many are choosing to call Hollyhock, "Home."
