The Office of Arts and Culture presents ART 214, a city-wide juried exhibition
As part of Dallas Arts Month 2022, the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture (OAC) is pleased to announce the 4th annual city-wide ART214 Exhibition. This is a multi-venue visual arts project that showcases the works of artists who live in Dallas and the greater North Texas region. The OAC’s cultural centers (Bath House Cultural Center, Oak Cliff Cultural Center, South Dallas Cultural Center, Moody Performance Hall, and Latino Cultural Center) will present the citywide juried exhibition.
This collaborative, multi-venue exhibit draws in new audiences and cross-pollinates patrons who may frequent a specific center but have never experienced the others. Through this exhibition, OAC has developed relationships with new artists, provided opportunities for artists to exhibit their work for the first time in one of our cultural centers or for the first time ever. In the past four years, approximately 900 artists have participated in this exhibition – the largest of its kind in North Texas. This year 600 artists submitted entries and 222 works of art were selected by the jurors.
Artworks were selected by jurors Narong Tintamusik, Marilyn Waligore, Raul Rodriguez, Gerald L. Leavell II, and David McCullough. Curator Daisha Board has thoughtfully curated works across the five centers to engage the diverse communities we serve and showcase the talent in our city.
Thirty-five of these works will be on view at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center from April 23 – May 21, 2022. A reception will be held for the artists on April 23 from 6 - 8 pm.
ART214 is part of Dallas Arts Month, a city-wide celebration of Dallas arts first launched in 2013. Arts Month is designed to build awareness for and appreciation of the work of Dallas artists and organizations and foster creative learning and activity throughout the city. Residents and visitors are encouraged to participate in the events and programming offered by arts and cultural institutions from all disciplines.
