“There is so much artistic talent in East and Old East Dallas. My thought was, let’s make it an official unified arts district.”

.…on working with a group of local artists to create the East Dallas Arts District, via CultureMap Dallas.
Lamarsaude says there are “60-plus” artists, galleries, and creative businesses in East and Old East Dallas. Now she’s working to band them together to form an attraction all their own called the East Dallas Arts District.
“It would be so useful to have a map for people who were interested in finding studios and related businesses,” she told CultureMap Dallas’ Teresa Gubbins. “Making an official community in East Dallas would be community building, business building, arts building, and show off local talent.”
The district would extend from Fair Park’s Exposition Avenue to Winsted Drive and Parry Avenue to East Mockingbird Lane, CultureMap says, with an annual art walk slated to begin as soon as 2024.
An informational meeting about the district is being held Thursday, November 16, from 6 to 8 pm, at 4428 Main St. You can RSVP for it here.
