CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS
WHEN: 18 November 2023
WHERE: The Cedars, Dallas, TX
On one magical day in November, visitors to the annual Cedars Open Studios Tour experience diverse art studios and galleries set amongst the historic beauty of one of Dallas’ oldest neighborhoods. During this event, we rely on volunteers to support the inner workings of the tour and help guide visitors at the studio locations.
For 2023, The Cedars Open Studios organization is excited to offer a new experience for individuals signing up to volunteer. To showcase how the architectural heritage of the Cedars created a haven for artistry, volunteers will have the option to register for two curated events:
· a curator-led tour of the Rosie Apartment Collection [1722 South Harwood St], composed of art by members of The Dallas Nine and Their Circle of Texas artists representing mainly the Texas Regionalist movement, plus some contemporary works by Texas artists. Featured are works by Fred Darge, Cecil Casebier, Velox Ward, Alexander Hogue, Otis Dozier, David Bates, Sedrick Huckaby, Frank X. Tolbert and many more.
· a guided talk in the Boedeker Building (1922) [1201 South Ervay St] about the exciting renovations taking place in this former ice cream factory. A long-planned venture for the Cedars Union, it will be the largest art studio community in Dallas after renovations are complete.
These fun, educational opportunities will only be available to volunteers!
