It’s a fundraiser for a fundraiser, which sounds weird, but it makes sense if you think about it a little bit.
Here are the details: It’s going down August 7 at Sons of Hermann Hall in Deep Ellum. They’ll be auctioning off more than 20 lanterns created out of coffee tins by local artists, as well as a historical tour of old Oak Cliff led by Jason Roberts, and a farmer’s market tour (followed by dinner) with Parigi chef Chad Houser and owner Janice Provost. Also: there will be performances by Airline, True Widow, and Glen Farris in between the auction. And all proceeds will help fund the large-scale benefit Art Conspiracy hosts in December that will raise funds for Resolana, which puts together art classes for female inmates at Dallas County Jail and Dawson State Jail (this year’s Diorama-O-Rama also sent money to the organization). It costs $7 to get in, and opening bid for the lanterns is $20.
