The Art Conspiracy: 100 Artists | 5 Bands | 1 Night
The Art Conspiracy takes place this Saturday, Dec. 3, at the Texas Theater here in Dallas, and here's how it works:
At 7 a.m. December 2nd, 2005, hundreds of empty canvases will be placed throughout the lobby of the Texas Theater. Dallas' most noted artists will take shifts and fill in as many of the canvases as possible in a 24 hour period.
At 7 p.m. December 3rd, 2005, Doors will open to the public of Dallas' most historic and infamous theater. The many canvases filling the lobby walls will be available to anyone and everyone. You, the audience, will determine the price of the piece you take, and money will be collected using the honor system only
I am seriously excited about this event, and here's why:
- I'm moving into a new house on Saturday, so this will be a chance for me to buy some real art to adorn my bare walls.
- This will be the first event in over 10 years to be held at the Texas Theater, which is where Lee Harvey Oswald was caught after he shot JFK (allegedly).
- The Happy Bullets, Salim Nourallah, and Pleasant Grove will be performing, and I love them all. Plus I've heard great things about the Theater Fire and I Love Math and they're performing too.
- And most importantly, all proceeds will benefit children affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
