Somehow, imperfectly and with great losses, we have arrived at the week of The Dallas Art Fair. And once again it promises to be the single busiest week for the Dallas contemporary art world of the calendar year. As always, there are a million opportunities to see art, party, network, and that is even before you get to the fair itself
As we celebrate spring and our collective reawakening, make sure you and the people you know check out at least something on this list. Folx work countless hours to make these shows, fairs, and events happen.
The least we can do is honor their energy with our time and presence. And if you find yourself standing in front of a piece of art that speaks to your soul - don’t be afraid to take it home with you. Pro tip: payment plans are a thing. For more pro tips on how to navigate the fair and a few VIP invites - become a paid subscriber today!
