Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas will celebrate creativity and community with a Sunday Soup Supper at 3015 at Trinity Groves. CADD FUNd: Winner Takes All will be a fun, fast-paced evening of sharing innovative ideas about potential artistic projects. The CADD FUNd will make possible a high-impact idea that needs the support of the Dallas-Fort Worth arts community.
The idea for CADD FUNd: Winner Takes All was inspired by similar events throughout the United States such as Feast in Brooklyn, Incubate in Chicago and Spread in Santa Fe. Over the past several years, numerous organizations have taken the basic premise of a Sunday soup dinner - collect creative proposals, invite the public to pay, eat and listen, and then democratically vote for a winner - and adapted it to their own local purposes.
This year's CADD FUNd will be awarded to a current or previous M.A. or M.F.A. candidate from an institution within 100 miles of Dallas. Six finalists will be selected from all of the applicants. During the event they will present short proposals for original and yet-to-be-realized new projects. Members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions. The audience participants then vote for their favorite project. After a short recess to tally the votes, the Winner Takes All!
