Saturday Spotlight: Oak Cliff Art Crawl

by Stephen Becker 24 Apr 2009 6:09 PM


This week’s Saturday Spotlight focuses on the first Oak Cliff Art Crawl. For more information on the event:

FIND: For a list of participating galleries, visit the event’s listing on the Art&Seek calendar.

REACT: The Oak Cliff Art Crawl is just one of a slew of visual arts events this weekend. Others include Cedar Springs Art Festival, the 10th Annual Art is Ageless event and the Funky Finds Spring Fling. Does holding all of these events on the same day make it easier to just hop from the one to the next? Or would you prefer that they were spaced out a little better?

DISCUSS: One of the crawl’s participating shops is the Soda Gallery. The Gallery’s Web site has collected some of its favorite soda commercials from the past, including a Coke commercial from 1959.  Do any of these top perhaps the most famous soda commercial of all time – Mean Joe Green accepting a Coke from that adoring little fan?

CREATE: Another stop on the tour is the Ice House Cultural Center. Earlier in the day, the Center will also teach a class on collage making. If you’ve got a spare $20 and really want to make it an all-day arts affair, be there at 11 a.m.
