Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas celebrate creativity and community with a Sunday Soup Supper on November 16th at 3015 at Trinity Groves. "CADD FUNd: Winner Takes All", will be a fun, fast-paced evening of sharing innovative ideas about potential artistic projects. The CADD FUNd will make possible a high-impact idea that needs the support of the Dallas-Fort Worth arts community.

The idea for "CADD FUNd: Winner Takes All" was inspired by similar events throughout the United States such as Feast in Brooklyn, Incubate in Chicago and Spread in Santa Fe. Over the past several years, numerous organizations have taken the basic premise of a Sunday soup dinner - collect creative proposals, invite the public to pay, eat, and listen, and then democratically vote for a winner - and adapted it to their own local purposes.

Our six finalists are from a pool of current or previous M.A. or M.F.A. candidate from an institution within 100 miles of Dallas. They were selected by three jurors including: Gabriel Ritter, the Nancy & Tim Hanley Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at Dallas Museum of Art; Judy Deaton, Chief Curator at The Grace Museum; and William Rudolph, Ph.D., The Marie and Hugh Halff Curator of American Art and Mellon Chief Curator at the San Antonio Museum of Art.

During the event the finalists will each present short proposals for original and yet-to-be-realized new projects, audience members will ask questions and then vote for their favorite project. After a short recess to tally the votes, the Winner Takes All!

ALL funds raised by ticket sales will go to the winner!
Tickets are $40.00 per person
Tickets will not be available at the door

"Sebastian Boncy describes himself as existing in a sort of cultural limbo: a Haitian in Texas, a Texan in the other 49 states..."

Local photographer's mordant camera eye tells it like it is.
