Perhaps you’ve read Wick’s editorial in the May issue of the print product. Maybe it got you excited about D Art Slam. I hope so–because it’s almost here. Our first-ever D Art Slam, presented by D Magazine and F.I.G., begins May 29 and runs through May 31 at F.I.G. (1807 Ross Ave.). More than 150 local artists—Rees Bowen, Glenn Comtois, Frankie Garcia III, Michael Ledoux, Michael Longhofer, Shane Pennington, George Tobolowsky, and our award-winning staff photographer Elizabeth Lavin—exhibit and sell their works at this three-day juried show in the Dallas Arts District. At the VIP preview party on Thursday, March 28, from 7 to 9 pm, attendees can mix and mingle with the artists and be the first to purchase their favorite works. Tickets for the preview party are $100. To see a full list of participating artists, or to purchase tickets, visit the web site.
The event is virtual and free this year.
