The Gallery Walk features over 35 of DADA’s member galleries, museums, and nonprofit art spaces throughout the Dallas Metroplex that will be open from 2 to 8 p.m. for this FREE event that allows art lovers to socialize and roam (in a car) from gallery to gallery all in one day. Start at any of the DADA members and pick up a map.
The panel discussions provide education for artists and members of the public and are $15 each. Panel 1 will be from 10:30 to noon and will present Career Choices 101: Being Smart about Your Career as an Artist with Benito Huerta, Vicki Meek, and Pamela Nelson. Panel 2, Art and Economics 101: Pricing and Protection of Art in Today’s Economy, will be from 1 to 2:30 p.m. with Bob Banks, Steve Green, Charles Lipscomb, and Cheryl Vogel.

About the Edith Baker Art Scholarship
To celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2005, DADA created a scholarship honoring a respected member of the Dallas art community and one of its founding members, Edith Baker. Edith owned and directed The Edith Baker Gallery in Dallas for nearly 30 years before retiring in 2004. Proceeds from several DADA events held each year, as well as from collection jars at each DADA member location, benefit the Edith Baker Art Scholarship Fund, a 501c3 nonprofit. The scholarship annually benefits a graduating senior from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts who is planning to attend college and continue his or her studies in the visual arts. Besides the cash award, the finalists and the winner present their portfolios to a jury and display their works at the Spring Gallery Walk through an exhibition at a member gallery (Norwood Flynn). The winner also has the opportunity to pursue a summer internship and a mentor-for-a-day program with a DADA member of the winner’s choice.
