Art Con celebrates Dallas’ thriving arts scene, combining the forces of creativity and philanthropy to connect people through the universal language of art. The fundraiser is organized by Art Conspiracy, a local nonprofit. Since 2005, the organization has hosted this signature event every fall, choosing a new beneficiary to receive the ticket proceeds each year.

Guests can look forward to live music from soulful duo Medicine Man Revival, ‘60s-inspired rock group Acid Carousel and vinyl DJ twosome the Good Taste Collective.

Challenged with creating a piece of collectible art within 24 hours, more than 120 local artists were given an 18-by-18-inch plywood board to use as a canvas. The event includes a live auction featuring the works of these participating artists, with bids starting at $20.

This year’s beneficiary is Seek the Peace, a group that works to equip refugees with necessary knowledge and skills to become leaders and advocates for peace, both at home and abroad. Seek the Peace will utilize the funds to implement an Arts First Aid program in Dallas’ Vickery Meadow neighborhood, using creative expression to provide healing.
