Now in our 15th year, cedars open studios is the largest event of the year in The Cedars. The Cedars, Dallas, Texas has long been home to a diverse group of Dallas painters, photographers, sculptors and musicians who have contributed to the deep and gritty history of the neighborhood.
Watch live demos and meet renowned artists such as Bowman Glass / Artists in Glass, Albert Scherbarth, Rick Maxwell and TONY COLLINS art + home. Visit the growing number of galleries including Ro2 Art, Janette Kennedy Gallery and Cedars Art House.
Special exhibits this year include The Museum of Street Culture “Looking for Home” featuring the photography by Mary Ellen Mark. The installation in Encore Park Dallas traces the life of Tiny, a 13-year-old runaway teen when Mark first encountered her in Seattle, Washington, in 1983, while Mark was working on a story for Life Magazine.
Dallas Heritage Village at Old City Park exhibit “Neighborhoods We Called Home,” explores the historic neighborhoods of Dallas that served as strong, supportive communities for African American, Hispanic, and Jewish Dallasites from the early 1900s and beyond.
Bike Friendly Cedars will lead a pedal powered tour of the studios and Lime Bike will have bikes available at a special rate for visitors.
If you’ve never been to the Cedars, now is a great chance to learn about the neighborhood – itself an evolving work of art.
