Though Dragon.open was a couple weekends ago, art spaces in the Design District haven’t slowed their roll. This Saturday,the Dallas Contemporary and Green Bandana Group are hosting opening celebrations you won’t want to miss.
DC’s new exhibit is a group show featuring work by FAILE, George Herold, Keving Todora, Kristen Cochran and Lucia Simek. FAILE’s “Where Wild Won’t Break” exhibit is the artist’s first-ever solo museum show, having started as street artists in Brooklyn, New York. According to a post on FAILE’s Facebook page, he’s already added some Western-themed street art to an unassuming wall in Dallas, and garnered national attention on ARTnews.
The opening celebration at the Contemporary is from 9 p.m. until midnight and will have live music from Ronnie Heart, complimentary beverages, and food from Salsa Limon. DC is located at 161 Glass Street.
Right next door at 141 Glass Street, the vacant Jim Lake Companies building that houses the Shepard Fairey mural, Green Bandana Group is curating a group show featuring work by Steph Hargrove, Fred Villanueva and Jordan Castilleja. There will also be live music from Complex.Simplicity and Green Bandana Punch while it lasts.
The 141 Glass Street opening is from 8 p.m. to midnight, and the show will stay up for six weeks.
Of course, before all of the parties start, don’t forget to swing by the galleries on the DADA Gallery Walk taking place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can also ride you bike with area groups Bike Friendly Design District, Bike Friendly Oak Cliff, Bike Friendly Cedars and Bike Friendly Deep Ellum at different meet-up points throughout the day.
