Nineteen floors closer to heaven.
Blessed by the generosity of Sardone Construction, I attended Artist vs. Architect, an event featuring works by twenty-four Dallas artists. Held at 750 N. St. Paul Place, more often referred to as the D Magazine building, the silent auction and friendly competition showcased works in the theme of overcoming poverty. It was a gala supporting Dwell With Dignity.
The exhibit layout was circular, art and architecture presented along windowed walls.
Walking in circles has never been such fun!
I watched a mural evolve throughout the evening.
I people watched.
Between laps, I sampled wine served by Buon Vino, and cocktails by Pisco Porton.
I stalked shoes all night.
I joined in, emptying platters of shrimp dumplings and lobster rolls as quickly as they'd been filled.
Around and around I went, seeing something new each time.
I had a couple of favorites.
Ultimately, I tossed my blue chip into the jar for Jeffrey K Jensen of HKS Architects because I've loved his watercolors for a long time now. Check out his NYC scenes on his website.
The sun had set when an artist took the challenge of painting a canvas in eight minutes. The piece was a haunting reminder of the purpose for this evening.
Before leaving, I checked the traffic on the signature wall.
I hope everyone was having a great time for a great cause.
My thanks again to Stephan.
It was a BLAST!
