Conspire For a Good Cause Tomorrow
You’d have to be a resident of a deep, dark hole somewhere to not know about some of the great work Art Conspiracy does for the Dallas community. The annual one-night-only art gallery/auction/concert starts at 7 p.m. tomorrow in a very unassuming warehouse at 511 W. Commerce St., which happens to be the same place as last year.
This year’s beneficiary is Today Marks the Beginning, a nonprofit that uses art to teach non-violence and social justice to children. Karen Blessen, the organization’s co-founder, said being selected as this year’s Art Conspiracy recipient couldn’t have come at a better time.
“It’s been a challenging year economically for a lot of arts non-profits,” Blessen said. “So the news of our being chosen as the Art Conspiracy beneficiary was both a big psychic and economical shot in the arm.”
Blessen says that the funds from Art Conspiracy will help the organization continue bringing the message of peace and justice to Dallas children through art.
“On top of that, Art Conspiracy does a terrific job of publicizing the event, so we hope to enlarge the community awareness of what we do in Today Marks the Beginning,” she said. “We also hope to make a lot of new friends in the arts community.”
