If you're nostalgic for the warehouse parties of your youth, you've got the chance to relive those bygone days. Even better, you probably won't have to worry about the police busting up the party. The fourth annual Art Conspiracy, set for Saturday, December 6, will take place in a 40,000-square-foot warehouse at
4011 3011 Gulden in West Dallas.
This year's performers will include Mount Righteous, Paul Slavens' electro-classical symphony Chameleon Chamber Group, Aton and DJ sets from Sober and Select, along with video installations from Edward Ruiz.
As in past Art Cons, artists will create artworks on site during the 24 hours before the event. During the event, the pieces will be auctioned off between band sets. Proceeds from this year's event will go to Preservation Link, which teaches media literacy and self-esteem to South Dallas and Fair Park students through photography and videography programs. The cause was announced at the SEED fund-raiser at Sons of Hermann Hall in June. This year, some 150 artists will participate.

The venue is a break from the organization's tradition of using historic venues like the Texas Theater, Longhorn Ballroom and the Door (site of the former Gypsy Tea Room).--Jesse Hughey
