Art in October celebration in the Dallas Arts District

October is a significant time for the Dallas Arts District; it is the anniversary of the opening of both the AT&T Performing Arts Center and the Nasher Sculpture Center, the start of the seasons for many of the performing arts organizations, and the opening of new museum exhibitions.

’Art In October’ is a celebration of the Dallas Arts District, spotlighting the district’s organizations, venues, and programs with a variety of events, including street performances, art activities, and a few surprises,” says Veletta Forsythe Lill, Executive Director of the Dallas Arts District. “We wanted to create a way to celebrate our unique cultural offerings and engage the community.”

Exhibitions during this time include: The Mourners: Medieval Tomb Sculptures from the Court of Burgundy at the Dallas Museum of Art, Revelation: The Art of James Magee at the Nasher Sculpture Center, and Tibet: The Land Closest to the Sky: Photographs by Marc Riboud at the Crow Collection of Asian Art.

The Dallas Opera opens their season with a free Opening Night Simulcast of Don Giovanni at the newly opened Annette Strauss Square at the AT&T Performing Arts Center. The Dallas Theater Center’s Henry IV runs through October 10, with a Pay-What-You-Can performance on October 2, in honor of our Art in October Opening Celebration. The Dallas Symphony Orchestra presents works by Brahms, Mendelssohn, Shostakovich, and other special performances including Liza Minnelli with the DSO. As part of D Magazine’s FrontRow Presents: A Film Series, the Dallas Film Society and AT&T Performing Arts Center will present Casablanca on October 16 at Annette Strauss Square at the AT&T Performing Arts Center.

Several new collaborations have taken shape for Art In October. The Dallas Arts District and Dallas Center for Architecture, in collaboration with the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe, St. Paul United Methodist Church and First United Methodist Church will present a Sacred Spaces Tour on October 26. In addition, the Dallas Arts District and Dallas Museum of Art, in collaboration with the Arc Dallas, present a special exhibition to be featured at the Rotunda at Chase Tower. Art & Ability is a 10-day exhibition showcasing the work of The Arc of Dallas’s Artistic Expressions class and other artists with and without disabilities. For each artwork sold, half of the proceeds will go to the artist, providing an important source of income. The other half supports The Arc of Dallas’ programs and services for people with intellectual and related developmental disabilities. The Art & Ability exhibition series feature extraordinary paintings, sculptures, drawings and more to delight audiences throughout the D/FW area and help extinguish stereotypes about the “ability” of those with a disability. The exhibition will run October 22 through October 31.

High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, Crow Collection of Asian Art, Dallas Black Dance Theatre, Dallas Center for Architecture, Dallas Film Society, Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas Opera, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Dallas Theater Center, Nasher Sculpture Center, and TITAS.

Mark Renner “The Deserters”

FWCAC will host an exhibition of new works from Mark Renner, running the 3-29 of October. Opening reception will be Friday, 7 October , from 6-9 pm. at the Fort Worth Community Art Center, 1300 Gendy St., Fort Worth , Texas 76107
info@markrenner.net

The work that comprises The Deserters exhibition is, in many ways, a continuation for me. These are works that visit what have been resonating, lifelong themes in both the visual and musical work I have aspired to create. I possess a growing awareness of the immeasurable impact of words in fertilizing the seed of visual expression. I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the lasting impact on my mind’s eye informed by the stories of Hermann Hesse, John Bunyan, and George MacDonald in my youth—their influence is tempered here with the redemptive narrative of the Bible and the journey of the individual.
