PREVIEW GALA BENEFIT
A special Preview Gala will launch the Dallas Art Fair on Thursday, April 7, 2011. The Gala will give art patrons the opportunity to preview the exhibits prior to the public opening of the fair. The Dallas Art Fair has chosen the renowned Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts and the Dallas Contemporary as the beneficiaries of the Preview Gala.

Utilizing the funds raised from the gala event, the Advisory Board of Booker T. Washington High School provides advancement opportunities for students at this top-rated arts magnet school through a variety of initiatives including the disbursement of annual scholarships.

Dallas Contemporary has a 30-year history of bringing innovative contemporary art to the City of Dallas. The institution has achieved dramatic growth in its presentation of regional artists and is expanding its reach to feature national and international talent. Dallas Contemporary is recognized for creating compelling exhibitions by emerging artists and also for the nationally award winning Art Think program which teaches students the skills to think creatively about contemporary art. Headquarters were recently re-located to a repurposed 1950’s industrial building that will serve as a kunsthalle of contemporary art in Dallas.
The Fashion Industry Gallery special event space comprises approximately 55,000 square feet of contemporary space within a mid-century modern building in the heart of Downtown Dallas. Exposed brick walls, polished concrete floor, natural and directional lighting, and additional spaces including a promenade adjacent to a private park, a spacious lobby and intimate lounge, the space is a blank slate that can be transformed into the optimal backdrop for the Dallas Art Fair. It’s where Nicole Richie held her book-signing party for “The Truth about Diamonds”; Valentino staged its private conclave cocktail party for Neiman Marcus; Grey Goose launched its “La Poire” vodka; “Modern Luxury Dallas” and “D Fashion” celebrated their debuts; and iconic director Francis Ford Coppola performed his private one-man show.
