(thanks Nikki)

This one is a lot of fun. As most of you know, the famous Deep Ellum Art Park statues were recently re-painted, 8 of them by ArtLoveMagic family artists. As we finished, I photographed Jaden, daughter of co-founder David Rodriguez, with each of our statues. You can see the full art at the corner of Good Latimer and Commerce. Map linked here. Enjoy.

DART event was a success

Posted in Deep Ellum, Love, Magic, photography with tags , , , , , , on September 14, 2009 by artlovemagic

You know, I was really proud of our crew this weekend. The DART event might’ve been rainy, but it was beautiful. I couldn’t believe that we drew a big crowd despite the fierce rain, and was even more surprised at how long they stayed. Most everyone had a smile, even though the conditions were pretty insane.

A full report is coming soon, that will detail the art and music that celebrated the Green Line’s arrival to Deep Ellum. But for right now, I just wanted to quickly share a few photographs of the beautiful smiles captured some local photographers who attended.
