What’s that screwy motto for the City of Dallas? “Live Large, Think Big” or did they change it to “Big Things Happen Here?” It seems we’re hellbent on letting the outside world know that Dallas is a big city that does, well, big things. But big is such a broad word. It can mean large, powerful, older, or significant. An organization that falls under the latter definition is Big Thought, a not-for-profit company that provides educational and artistic programs for children to supplement the school system. At 7 p.m. on Thursday, it’s your opportunity to make a sizable contribution to an ambitious cause when Dear Clark Hair Studio (3317 McKinney Ave) hosts an exhibition of the artwork of at-risk teens that are part of Big Thought’s Creative Solutions program. Buy a piece of art, or select hair products, and have a enormous – er, big – impact. More information is available at bigthought.org.
