Art Conspiracy is in the air again, which means it’s time for doing good and having fun.
Our 5th annual Art Conspiracy starts at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 12th at 511 W. Commerce. We’ll have secure parking (with police officers and parking attendants) 2 blocks from the building, beer and non-alcoholic beverages available. Although the forecast looks good, we’ll have heaters this year too!
If you’re not quite sure about the whereabouts of the warehouse, please visit www.artconspiracy.org to see a map.
Art Conspiracy is taking part in a couple of new things this time around. First, you can buy tickets in advance through Prekindle. The advantage is that you won’t have a long wait at the door.

Another great thing? We have partnered with KERA’s Art&Seek, an online community at www.artandseek.org where creative people can come together to find, discuss, create and react to art. Art&Seek has been featuring profiles of Art Conspiracy artists and of our beneficiary , Resolana. See more here:http://www.kera.org/blogs/culture/?s=art+conspiracy
As you probably know by now, Art Conspiracy differs from other arts fundraisers because the artists do their work on site the day before the event. On the eve of Art Conspiracy, artists work in shifts to fill 150 18 x 18 plywood canvasses, basically turning the warehouse into a giant art studio. During the actual event on Saturday,December 12, all of these newly created pieces will be sold in rapid-fire live auctions. Starting bids for all pieces is $20.
The artwork is made by Dallas-area artists of all stripes and the pieces they create at the warehouse represent many styles. If you look to the left, you see just a few of our artists and what they’ve come up with for past events.
All of this will benefit Resolana, a group that provides rehabilitative art lessons to women in the Dallas county jails.
Here’s a quick look at the schedule:
7:00 Doors Open
7:50 Art Auction One
8:40 The Boom Boom Box
9:10 Art Auction Two
9:50 The Crash That Took Me
10: 20 Art Auction Three
11:00 Telegraph Canyon
Thank you so much to our artists who give us their time and talent to create original auction worthy works and to our volunteers who use everything from carpentry skills, screen printing abilities and organizational talents (just to name a few things) to make Art Conspiracy tick.
A big “thank you!” to our sponsors too for providing us with money and the materials that help make Art Conspiracy happen.

In the five years Art Conspiracy has been around we’ve been lucky enough to have the support of thousands of attendees, hundreds of artists and hundreds of volunteers. We’ve raised more than $50,000 to help groups including La Reunion TX, St. Anthony Community Center and Preservation Link.
We’re looking forward to Saturday night and doing more good inDallas, hopefully we’ll see you at the warehouse!
