Cedars Neighborhood Association presents Cedars Open Studios Tour
Cedars Neighborhood Association will present the 2017 Cedars Open Studios Tour. The event will span an area of downtown Dallas that is not widely visited but rich in history and culture known as The Cedars. Taking place in a longtime artists’ community, this event offers a rare opportunity speak with local Dallas artists and watch them in action in the intimate setting of their studios.
Attendees can watch live demos and meet renowned artists, including Jim Bowman, Albert Scherbarth, and Tony Collins. Visitors can also drop by a number of local galleries, including Ro2 Art, Janette Kennedy Gallery and Cedars Art House.
Special exhibits this year include The Museum of Street Culture’s “Looking for Home,” an exhibit of prints from the late photographer Mary Ellen Mark. Dallas Heritage Village’s exhibit “Neighborhoods We Called Home,” explores the historic, culturally diverse neighborhoods of Dallas from the early 1900s and beyond.
In keeping with tradition, the tour will wrap with the “Decorating of the Tree” by Bowman Glass, a sunset performance art piece in steel and molten glass, followed by special events at Buzzworks and the newly reopened Longhorn Ballroom.
Bike Friendly Cedars will lead a special pedal powered tour of the studios.
