That up there is a video, from the visual wizards at You+Dallas, chronicling last year's Artopia, the annual Dallas Observer art party. The event, at the Dallas Contemporary, celebrates art, fashion, design, music and the rest of the cultural color wheel, and it's where we unveil the winners of our annual MasterMind winners. It's a good time, really.
This year's event is actually next year, on Saturday, January 26. We'll announce more details starting next week and throughout next month, when GA tickets will be on sale for $30. They go up to $40 in January and will be $50 day-of, and they include food, beer, wine and liquor sampling.
But you can get some cheaper between now and Sunday: $22 for GA and $39 for VIP, an $80 day-of ticket that includes a more elaborate spread, a VIP lounge and some other perks. Check out this Voice Daily Deal for more details, and whether you buy now or later, we'll see you there, OK?
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
