With all the excitement and energy surrounding Floyd Casey Stadium’s final game, one near-campus store is helping Baylor look forward to the future.
Harts N Crafts gift shop, arts and craft supply store gives a peek at the process with its original painting of the building of Baylor Stadium.
Artist Joe Magnano created a painting of the new stadium, aptly named “Progress.” Harts N Crafts has made 2,500 copies of the painting that are all signed and numbered. These are limited edition pieces; once they are gone, there will be no more.

The coffee in Waco just got a little bit better.
Dichotomy Coffee & Spirits, which ran out of Croft Art Gallery for the past year, finally opened its doors last week at its own official storefront on Austin Avenue in downtown Waco.
The specialty coffee shop, which also serves food and alcoholic beverages, was founded with the mindset of bringing a high-grade product to its customers while giving them a comfortable, unique environment in which to enjoy it.
