If you wanted to attend Saturday night's Phenomenon event with Shepard Fairey at the Dallas Contemporary but can't swing the $50 ticket -- or were just interested in hearing the artist's intent, there's a chit chat with Fairey at 7 p.m. tonight at the Dallas Contemporary.
The chit to Fairey's chat will be handled by Pedro Alonzo, adjunct curator of the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston. Alonzo is well-versed on the topic of street art; he guest curated the wildly popular 2010 exhibition Viva La Revolución at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego. When these two get together, expect a conversation as colorful as our city's new murals. Both informative and free (!!!) the interview is open to the public.
**Update** . I just spoke with the Dallas Contemporary and they said that nobody will be turned away from this event, but that at this point it is standing room only.
