I learned one thing on the Oak Cliff Visual Speed Bump Tour this weekend and that’s to start early and pace yourself. Fifteen artists invited us into their studios to see how they create art and each host on the tour could not have been nicer. Everyone was willing to talk about the art and even give demonstrations of the creative process. So, out of fifteen locations I only made it to five.
