State of the Arts is back for another season, kicking off on Sept. 11 with a focus on contemporary artists.

Like most SOA panelists, Art&Seek has been following this group here on the site and on KERA. They are Devon Nowlin, a founding member of collective Homecoming Committee; Arthur Peña, founder and director of WARE:WOLF:HAUS and VICE PALACE, and Darryl Ratcliff, community engagement associate with SMU’s National Center for Arts Research and Initiative on Arts + Urbanism.

Jeff Whittington hosts the conversation series, which is presented by Art&Seek and the Dallas Museum of Art.

Join us at 7 p.m. on the 11th at the DMA. Tickets are $5. (Admission to the museum is free.)

And mark your calendar for Oct. 9, same time, same place, when we’ll explore the world of art conservation with Mark Leonard, chief conservator at the DMA and Jodie Utter, conservator of works on paper at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art.
