WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - The Arts Council WF has announced that the Mystery Art Fest exhibit and online action has opened!

The exhibit’s 250 original pieces of art can be seen in person at the Kemp Center for the Arts or online through the month of October. The true mystery lies in the identities of the 177 local, regional, and national artists: all creator’s names are hidden and will remain a secret until Oct. 22, when pieces will be auctioned on the final night of the exhibit.

The Arts Council has scheduled a month of activities leading up to that final auction, which can be seen in the schedule below. All of the events are free and open to the public.

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

Thursday, Oct. 21 from 5-8 p.m.

The gallery is open late until 8 p.m. for a final after-hours chance to view the art and place bids.
