It’s a great week to live in Dallas if you’re an art-lover. As part of Dallas Arts Week, there’s a plethora of events to attend, art to check out, and city-wide activities for the family. I’ve sifted through the press releases and will outline some of the highlights for you, reader.
Dallas Art Fair: The fair features more than 80 national and international contemporary and modern artists in mediums such as paintings, sculptures, works on paper, photography, video and more. The FIG (1807 Ross Avenue) is the venue and the fair runs from Friday, April 12 through Sunday, April 14. For more information and ticket prices, go here.
Dallas Art Fair Preview Gala: If you’re serious about buying art, attend the preview gala. Get dressed up to see the works before the general public. The gala benefits the DMA, Nasher, and Dallas Contemporary. Tickets are $250 and available here.
Dallas Convention & Vistors Bureau BIG Social Media Contest: Have you seen those big blue B’s and G’s placed around Dallas? Take a picture as the “I” and post it to social media with the hashtag #DallasBIG. You may just be one of their weekly winners.
