Application for Taste of Dallas (June 3rd - June 5th)
Taste of Dallas, an annual event within Fair Park focused on food, art, music, and family, has asked Dr Gorilla Studio to create a highlighted area within the event known as the "Art Live" space. Taste of Dallas will be happening at Fair Park on Friday June 3rd through Sunday June 5th (Fr: 5pm-11pm, Sa: 11am-11pm, Su: 11am - 8pm). Artist interested in presenting within the Art Live area will need to print and fill out the application form and pay a $200 booth fee. The artist will keep 100% of sales throughout the weekend.
Being a part of this space will require the participating artist to be creating live (hence the name of the area). This does not mean that the artist will need to be cranking out multiple pieces, though they can if they like. It does mean that, with minimal breaks throughout the day, the artist should be working on some bit of artwork during show hours within the 3 days. In addition to being highlighted within this space, the artist will also get the opportunity (optional) to produce a piece live within the center of the overall presentation, like the Davies brothers did at Artopia (pictured above and in these photos from Artopia). We will have shifts available to artists who would like to create "center stage" throughout the weekend.
The Art Live area is already being promoted on Taste of Dallas' website: http://www.tasteofdallas.org/art.html . Only 18 slots are available in total for this section of the festival. If you would like to be one of the featured artists specifically within this collective, please email me, David Rodriguez, with the following details: Subject line: Taste of Dallas Art Live Artist, Email Content: your full name, email and phone, your website address, and social media pages (facebook, instagram, tumblr, etc. Please only share sites that are available to view without being "friends/connected"). If you are selected to be a part of Art Live then you will be sent an application to fill out as soon as possible. Thank you.
