CADD (Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas) is a local non-profit that, according to their website, was formed in 2006 “for the purpose of promoting the advancement of contemporary art on all levels.” The group also raises funds for a CADD scholarship for a graduating senior at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing Arts. And might I add, they put together some pretty cool events. The informative Art Bus Tour allows guests to kick back and relax on the bus while touring local galleries and collections. I especially love the opportunity to tour a personal collector’s home, something you don’t get to just drop by every day. (And aren’t we all down with a little voyeurism?)
This weekend’s tour will feature a stop by Barry Whistler Gallery, Photographs Do Not Bend Gallery, and the home of art collectors Lizzie and Dan Routman. The tour will make a pit-stop at The Reading Room for Hypnotic Sushi and a brief gallery talk. Janet Kutner, former Dallas Morning News art critic, will lead the charge and guide tour-goers through the aforementioned visits. Hop on the bus this Saturday, January 19 at 10:30am. The bus leaves the station at PDNB. Buy the $50 ticket here.
