Get Excited: Art Con 9 Announced its 2013 Participating Artists
Bring it, 2013.
The activists have been working in their secret lair, drafting final details for Art Con 9. We don't know the precise location of said war room, but imagine it to be a well-appointed Batcave, complete with remote-controlled giant rock entry.
They're artists, after all. They understand how to complete "a look."
This transmission just arrived via falcon, inked on handmade paper. And when the lengthy scroll was unrolled, Observer staffers chucked their stagnant coffee cups and did this. Because holy crap, 170 of you are contributing work.
Art Con 9 benefits the My Possibilites CREATE art program, so in addition to the usual high-energy auctions, this Con includes a few submissions by those wonderful My Possibilities participants. Add on DJ sets by local favs Sarah Jaffe and Empty Cylinder, and live music by Zhora and New Fumes, and November 16 is shaping up to be one tremendous night in Dallas.

More than 300 entry requests were submitted, with a random drawing held to thin it out. There are old names. New names. And even some young names -- like 12-year-old Kate Langley, who's stepping up and creating an auction piece for the event.
