Art Conspiracy has raised a tall pile of cash in recent years for the likes of Preservation LINK, La Reunion TX and St. Anthony Community Center; now it has set its sights on Resolana, a nonprofit with an outpost in the Dallas County Jail that uses art "to empower women to break the cycle of incarceration." But to raise some dough for the big December blow-out, proceeds from which will go to Resolana, Year-One'r Cari Weinberg, AC's event coordinator, sends word of a summertime fundraiser scheduled for August 7 at the Sons of Hermann Hall.
During that Sons shindig, Art Conspiracy will auction off, among other things, 20 artists' lanterns created out of coffee tins, as well as a tour of Oak Cliff led by Art Conspiracy co-founder Jason Roberts and a Dallas Farmers Market tour that'll also include dinner with Parigi chef Chad Houser and its owner, Janice Provost. Glen Faris, Airline and True Widow will also perform. Need any more reasons to attend? Thought not.
