Thought-Provokers: East Dallas

Dallas has always had an artistic soul. The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community. Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.

Michelle Dekkers

People had no idea that I was artistic and I started getting so many requests from friends that I couldn’t keep up. Almost one year after starting the 100-Day Project, I decided that I wanted to give this whole “art and graphic design thing” a try. Read more>>
