AURORA’s auxiliary program, AURORA Expanded, is a citywide program focused on spotlighting and supporting North Texas artists through a year-round series of site-specific installations, special events and social gatherings. Its most recent event—‘Area 3,’ an immersive, drive-thru exhibition in a parking garage—directly supports regional artists and vendors whose incomes have been directly impacted in the wake of COVID-19.

Previous Expanded events have included educational programs as well as exhibitions and performances held in parallel to the Biennial exhibition to activate additional art spaces throughout Dallas.
