The sixth annual Dallas Art Fair kicks off April 11 at Fashion Industry Gallery, featuring nearly 100 local, national and international exhibitors. For the second year, CultureMap helps make it possible for art lovers to experience the fair for free with Professionals Day.

Here’s how: Visit the fair’s ticketing page, select one-day pass and enter the code DAFProfessional2014. The ticket grants fairgoers access to Dallas Art Fair from 11 am-7 pm on Friday, April 11. Sounds like a good day to play hooky, don’t you think?

Local gallery owners credit the Dallas Art Fair with changing how the world sees the Dallas art scene, and exhibitors make the (sometimes long) trek because of our interest in art — and willingness to pay for it.

But the event isn’t only for serious collectors. The range of works — painting, sculpture, photography, video and installation art — appeals to first-time buyers as well as aficionados hoping to score an important piece. Patrons can browse and buy works from some of the most exciting up-and-coming and established modern artists.

Single-day tickets to the Dallas Art Fair normally range from $20-$25; three-day passes run $40-$50. To get your free Professionals Day ticket for April 11, visit the fair’s ticketing page and enter the code DAFProfessional2014. There are only a limited number of these passes available, so act fast.

The fair runs from April 11-13 at Fashion Industry Gallery. Hours are Friday and Saturday, 11 am-7 pm, and Sunday, noon-6 pm. For a complete schedule of events and programming, visit the Dallas Art Fair website.
