Art Con is an annual event that features the works of more than 150 local artists who were challenged to stretch their talents to create a piece of collectible art within 24 hours. Art Con guests can bid on completed works in a live auction. Bids start at $20. This year’s beneficiary is Seek the Peace.

In addition to the auction, there will be live music from local bands Medicine Man Revival and Acid Carousel, and DJ duo The Good Taste Collective.

Seek the Peace is a grass-roots, peace-building organization working to foster a just and stable environment among war-torn and refugee communities. With the funds raised by ArtCon, Seek plans to implement art programming specifically designed for trauma-healing in the population they serve.

Art Con, Art Conspiracy’s signature event, began in 2005. Combining the forces of creativity and philanthropy, we set out to create public awareness for the arts and to bring artists and musicians together – to “conspire” for the benefit of the local arts scene. Since Art Conspiracy began operation, it has raised close to $300,000 for small programs that provide arts and music programming in North Texas, including Music Is Our Weapon, Make Art with Peace, La Reunion, Girls Rock Dallas, My Possibilities and Preservation Link, among other worthy causes.
