Aurora to host a travel-in art exhibition in a downtown Dallas parking garage

As we proceed to are living everyday living at a length and significantly of our realities continue being virtual, depart it to Aurora to innovate. The big-scale, biennial light art pageant has declared plans for a generate-by songs, dance and visual practical experience called Space 3.

Eleven artists and creative teams will fill 100,000 sq. toes in the DalPark parking garage at 1600 Commerce St. with web-site-particular creations from Oct. 1 to Jan. 1. This venture is independent from the group’s regular programming and will spend artists whose cash flow has been shed since of the pandemic.

Aurora is one particular of a handful of arts companies stepping up to help artists monetarily, very first with its Artist Aid Fund and now with this exhibition.

So considerably in the pandemic, Dallas has observed a growth in travel-in activities — from films to DJs to parking ton theaters. The Dallas Modern day worked with internationally renowned artist Carrie Mae Weems to create billboards along hectic highways. And in late August, Dallas native Nolan McGahan launched his notion for Tin Star Theater, a pop-up doing arts location positioned in a great deal close to Trinity Groves. But this will be the city’s initial immersive, vehicle-centric visual art encounter.

Work on show will vary from towering neon mild installations from Denton-centered artist Alicia Eggert, to the quirky choreography of Danielle Georgiou Dance Team. There will be new online video art installations from artists which includes Dallas-centered Tramaine Townsend and duo Melanie Clemmons and Zack Lloyd. And it’s unachievable to predict what musician Francine 13 will do.

“Our target with Place 3 is to give the general public a glimmer of hope past their screens,” says Joshua King, government director of Aurora.


Tickets cost $30 per automobile and go on sale Monday, Sept. 14.

Nolan McGahan opened Tin Star Theater as a drive-in venue on the site of an empty lot in West Dallas.
