The Nasher’s 360 Speaker Series will host a panel titled, “New Pitches: Reframing Artists for a Changing Market,” which reimagines ways in which to make meaningful connections between artists and collectors in the ever- changing and evolving art world.
THE EYE BALL
End this week of events, talks, visits, previews, dinners, and drinks with the standout favorite event, The Eye Ball, held across from The Joule Hotel (the home-away-from-home for Dallas Art Fair goers each year). Named for its proximity to artist Tony Tasset’s 30-foot-tall Eye, now an icon of the city of Dallas (and proven selfie-magnet), the event brings together a crowd of artists, gallerists, collectors, patrons, and more. The Eye Ball is the best way to bid goodbye to Dallas Art Week, and you won’t want to miss being seen, seeing who’s there, and dancing away to special music performances.
