200 decorative and visual artists jury selected from around the country will have their distinctive one-of-a-kind works on display and for sale. Festival attendees can stroll through displays of cutting-edge decorative arts and admire, commission, and purchase the art of sculptors, muralists, jewelers, painters, wood workers, and other fine artists; some of whom will be creating pieces on the spot.

 Artist Underground

Enter the Rabbit Hole

The 2015 Artist Underground is a crazy fun, collaborative celebration of everything creative. Inspired by the Deep Ellum Arts Festival's new Easter mascot "Peter Rotten Tail" the punk rock bunny, the Artist Corner curators invite you to Enter the Rabbit Hole and go mad with delight!

There will be an open air gallery featuring 20+ local artists, live paintings by several local art groups and much, much more.  There will even be one artist painting a mural of Peter Rotten Tail on Friday that will be available for festival goers to take pictures with Saturday and Sunday. Lots of local love to be found here, in the Deep Ellum Texas section of the fest!
