Mayor Mike Rawlings has designated April 5 to 13 as Dallas Arts Week. This will be the second year for Dallas Arts Week, a week-long celebration of the arts with the goal of building awareness and appreciation for the arts.
During the week Mayor Rawlings and the City of Dallas Cultural Affairs Commission invites residents and visitors to participate in some of the myriad of arts and cultural events our area has to offer. To keep the conversation moving forward, participants are asked to post comments and pictures of their participation on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #DallasArtsWeek hashtag.
Art&Seek, a campaign partner with the City of Dallas Cultural Affairs Commission, has a Dallas Arts Week feature page with a comprehensive list of activities for you to choose from. Be sure to check it out.
There are a couple of events you will want to make sure to add to your calendar. One will be the inaugural Artsetters Master Class discussion. On April 7, Jac Alder, founder and producer of Theater Three, will be honored for his contributions to the Dallas arts scene. Art&Seek’s Jerome Weeks will moderate the discussion at the Nasher Sculpture Center. The next day, Mayor Rawlings will take his turn at moderating duties for the Re-Imagining Art in Dallas panel discussion at the Dallas City Performance Hall — and one member of that panel will be Art & Seek’s Anne Bothwell.
