Re: “D Art Slam”

One more thing. Wick and John Sughrue drafted a letter to explain what we’re up to. In part, they said:

Of all the changes to Dallas in the last decade, the most exciting to us is the burgeoning of a vibrant home-grown art community. On May 29-31, 2009, D Magazine and f.i.g. will celebrate this community at our first-ever D Art Slam at f.i.g., right next to Dallas’ fabulous new Center for the Performing Arts.

We are passionate about supporting local artists and introducing them to a greater audience. D Art Slam is a three-day, juried event designed to showcase the talent of local visual artists. We intend to make Dallas the number one city in America for promoting local talent in an elegant and sophisticated venue that complements their work.

The location couldn’t be better: f.i.g is a high-design, high-concept environment that is arresting without overpowering the work on the walls. It provides a comfortable space for patrons to interact informally with artists.

    Commenting has been a little light on this topic. Are FBians blushing? This all kind of feels like the cool kid with the cavariccis circa 1991 who suddenly realizes everyone has Nirvana’s Nevermind in their walkmen and so he shows up the next day in a flannel shirt.

    Are you sure you guys aren’t branching a little outside of your target audience?
