Hip Hop Helps Heal (H4) Rawked

Posted in Shows with tags , , , , , , , , on June 14, 2009 by artlovemagic

Last night ArtLoveMagic partnered with H4 for their second fundraising event, Mend the Home. Last year they raised funds for Susan G Komen and this year they raised funds for Genesis Women’s Shelter.

The night was a beautiful mix of hip hop, paint, and souls. A long time dream was fulfilled for Dave Rodriguez who was staged an painted live with hip hop artist, Playdough. Click on our photos on the right to see the pics from the night.

I was talking with Damascus last night and I shared with him my hope that the rennaisance of Deep Ellum will be one not only of art, but art that changes lives and the whole culture of Dallas.
Bring it, friends. We will rawk your face off.

What’s Next? Pigs Flying?

Posted in General Wierdness, Shows with tags , , on May 1, 2009 by artlovemagic

So, it is no news that weird weather stalks our events like, we insert your own metaphor here. Freak dust storm the day of our first big show in 07. Hail ten minutes before we opened the doors to Illuminate. I could go on and on.

But now, it appears the whole of Denton County is in on the conspiracy. It appears that they heard we were going to throw a pretty rad shindig on Saturday at Mecca on Main and to quell any possibility of future competition with their Arts Fest, they released a statement urging all Denton County residents to avoid public gatherings this weekend in order to avoid the possible spread of Swine Flu.. Wow. Dust. Hail. Pigs? That’s quite a line up.
Anyway, we want to encourage everyone who was planning on coming out to the fundraiser to instead lock themselves into their studios, put on their face masks and use the afternoon for a little personal creative time. Who knows? Maybe the pigs can be your chunky little muse.

We’re planning another show with Mecca for the summer so we’ll let you know what develops after these pigs fly over.
