The revamping of the arts district with the addition of the Dallas Center for Performing Arts is something we’re all looking forward to. But it’s easy to forget that part of the district redesign has already taken place with the renovation of Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts.
On Saturday, Booker T. holds its Taste of the Arts fundraiser at the school. If you haven’t seen the new look, it’s a good opportunity to browse around and check it out. And even if you have seen it, this is a chance to get acquainted with some of the new restaurants at One Arts Plaza while helping out some talented students.
The event begins at 6 p.m. at the school and features live and silent auctions as well as a slew of performances by Booker T. students. There are three ticket levels for the night:
Platinum Tickets ($80) – Includes admission to your choice of a school performance (valid anytime in 2009), a print designed by a current BTW Visual Arts student, a complimentary menu item at one of the five restaurants in One Arts Plaza and all other activities of the evening.
Gold Tickets ($50) – Includes admission to your choice of a school performance (valid anytime in 2009) and all other activities of the evening.
Silver Tickets ($25) – Includes admission to all activities of the evening.
