2013 Spare pARTS fundraiser — Saturday September 21
This year our 2013 Spare pARTS fundraiser for FWADG will be held on Saturday evening, September 21st 2013 at Babb Bros. BBQ at 330 Bedford, south of Singleton just west of the Calatrava bridge. As usual, great art, fabulous food, beverages and this year, live music from the Texas Rock Association as we recycle the 70s while featuring art made from recycled/repurposed materials.
Last year’s fundraiser was an incredible success! Thank you to all the Dallas area artists that participated.
All of the art created from discarded objects and recycled materials for last year’s fundraiser has afforded us a juried $5000 commission for a public art installation along our corridor. The winning submission by Robertus Joost van der Wege, the Magic Bike (a three-wheel, seven-seat bicycle 16 to 18 feet long made from recycled/re-purposed materials), is currently under construction. It will be installed and unveiled at the vendor trailer area at 400 W. Commerce by August 24th. A christening ceremony will be held on site on September 7th at 5 pm.
Please help FWADG make this year’s fundraiser a success by creating more fabulous art from discarded, lost and found objects. Our fundraiser is Sept 21, so now is the time to get those brain juices flowing, those glue guns and welders warmed up, and those paint palettes glistening with color.
Please have all donations submitted on or before Saturday, September 14th for the show, we will be inventorying the art at David Lyles Photography studio, 2318 Beatrice St. Dallas, 75208.
All contributing artists will receive a ticket to our event on September 21st at Babb Bros. BBQ. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions or comments at 214 587.4776.
Thank you again to all of our contributing artists from last year; and thank you in advance to all of you who will create for this year’s event! We could not be doing this without your support!
