Saturday November 21, 2015 at 12:00pm – 6:00pm
Join The MAC for the 13th Annual Cedars Open Studios Tour on Saturday, November 21 from Noon-6PM. Artists including Michael Bosch, Mikka Bosch, Luis Carrillo, Brady Cartwright, Cricket Griffin, Blake Harris, Michael Needleman, Lindsey Owen, and Tauma Wiggins will be on-site at The MAC demonstrating and discussing their artistic practice. The MAC will also host CEDARStories, a video booth where visitors and residents will have the opportunity to record their personal memories and stories of the Cedars.
This annual event attracts thousands of visitors to this creative, evolving neighborhood, a rich contributor to the history of Dallas, and one of the original artists’ districts of the city.
A large and diverse group of creatives call the historic Cedars neighborhood home which is the reason why many in the City refer to it as the artists’ district. Some have lived in the neighborhood for decades with shared and individual experiences. Whenever Cedars neighbors convene there are colorful stories shared. The MAC invites anyone who would like to share their tales of the life and history of this neighborhood to record them in a video log for safekeeping at CEDARStories.
Several transportation options are available for attendees including a bicycle tour led by Bike Friendly Cedars, pedicabs provided by Transit Tricycle, and Uber, all of which are easily accessible from the Cedars Dart Rail Station. Following the official end of the event, patrons are welcome to attend several after party events, including a live concert and performance art event at American Beauty Mill.

In conjunction with Cedars Open Studios, The MAC is pleased to bring together artists living and working in the neighborhood for a curated group exhibition. Lost Worlds includes recent works by Sheryl Anaya, Joshua von Ammon, Ali De Vito, Sean P. Miller, Sean David Morgan, and Michael Morris. Each artist, fully aware of the context of their medium, often deals with themes related to the human condition, from the affects of contemporary media to embodiment to identity. The exhibition includes video works, paintings and sculpture presented throughout The MAC compound.
Lost Worlds will be on view November 21 through December 12, 2015. The MAC will be open to the public Thursday and Friday from 1PM to 4PM or by appointment. A closing reception for Lost Worlds will be held on Saturday, December 12.
