Highlights from AURORA 2018: ‘Future Worlds’
As a non-profit public art organization that fuses together art, technology and community, AURORA relies on the support of generous donations to keep its programming free and open to the public. We deeply appreciate all donations, which go toward operational and production costs, including artist fees (we strongly believe in paying artists for the work).
Before AURORA’s biennial exhibition comes back to Dallas in 2020, this fall we return with AURORA Expanded, which aims to bring together the technology-based art community and its supporters through site-specific installations, special events and social gatherings.
On November 8th and 9th, AUORORA Expanded is presenting “As I Am,” a multidisciplinary exhibition showcasing personal stories as a means to inspire hope for our shared future, produced by Journeyman Ink and OutLoud Consulting. This summer, students from across Dallas engaged in a written, oral and visual storytelling process to create a body of work designed to move people to action through empathy building and shifting perspectives on important issues that teenagers face in their daily lives. More information can be found here.
We are excited to introduce this program and thank you for your continuous support of AURORA, which Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings has described as “a cornerstone event for the aritsts in North Texas.”
Leading support for “As I Am” has come from Comerica Bank. Major support was provided by Downtown Dallas, Inc., with additional support coming from Out Front Media.
