The City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA) announces a call for entries for ART214, a City-wide juried exhibition that will be presented during Dallas Arts Month in 2018.
Four OCA facilities, the Bath House Cultural Center, the Latino Cultural Center, the Oak Cliff Cultural Center and the South Dallas Cultural Center, are joining forces to organize a multi-venue juried exhibition that will showcase the works of artists who live in Dallas and in the Greater North Texas region.
ART214 is a four-section collaborative exhibition that gives the citizens of Dallas an opportunity to discover and enjoy the work of talented local and regional visual artists. Each of the partnering cultural center brings its own audiences, artists, communities and history. By scheduling connected dates to display a different section of the show at each center, as if presenting “four chapters of the same book,” the ART214 exhibition creates a unique opportunity for the public to visit all the centers during Dallas Arts Month, while also promoting collaboration and cross-pollination of artists and audiences.
Art in all media created in the last three years will be accepted from artists who currenly live in the DFW and Greater North Texas region. All concepts and subject matter are welcome.
An entry fee is not required. The Jurors will review photographs of completed artwork and will select pieces for the exhibition. Artists may submit up to two works of art for consideration.
All entries must be submitted online at
