The \"yard bombing\" at AT&T Performing Arts Center, in anticipation of \"Hair\"

Friday Night is the (Yarn) Bomb

It's a big night in the Dallas Arts District. Here are the deets on what's going on.



published Friday, September 16, 2011

It's obvious that the musical Hair is soon opening at AT&T Performing Arts Center, because the trees, light poles and other inanimate objects in the area have been "yarn bombed." You know, the hippies didn't just "make love not war," they made crafts!

The installation is made up of more than 100 individual pieces of art produced by more than 70 artists from local knitting groups The Dallas Yarn Bombers, The Lakewood Library KnitWits, Sisters of the Wool Fort Worth and MAFIA of Mansfield.

Get down there and check it out.

And in addition to tonight's opening of The Tempest at Dallas Theater Center/Wyly Theatre, there's also a "Dallas Arts District Crawl" happening this evening. It's the first of what's planned as a monthly happening, with "pop up park installations," happy hour bingo, concerts, karaoke and more.

Here's what up for Sept. 16:

 

Food trucks and Parking Day at 2121 Flora

5-9 p.m.

The amount of public community space in Downtown Dallas will increase dramatically Friday, September 16, 2011 as citizens transform parking spaces into short-term "PARK" installations.  The Dallas Arts District and Earth Day Dallas will transform parking along Flora with grass, trees, games and food trucks. The project is part of an effort to make downtown a more lively, active and community-oriented place to live, work and play.

 

Dallas Museum of Art (Tapas and Bingo)

Happy Hour Art Bingo

6-7 p.m., Atrium

Play the DMA's version of bingo as you enjoy happy hour drink specials at the bar. DJ Woodtronic and KERA's Rawlins Gilliland will spin music and call the games. Fill in all the spaces on your card to win. Four games will be played during the hour and the winner of each game will win a prize!

Late Night Tapas

6-9:30pm, Seventeen Seventeen

Experience Late Night Tapas with exhibition-influenced "small plate" preparations by our chef and half-price bottled wines.

 

Nasher (Get Your 80′s On!)

7 p.m. Concert:  LIVE 80

Live 80 plays all of the 1980's favorites everyone remembers outside in the garden. Grab a few friends, bring blankets to spread on the grass, and enjoy the magic of downtown as the sun sets over Dallas!

9 p.m. Film: Footloose (1984)

You'll also have the pleasure of exploring Tony Cragg: Seeing Things

Cragg is lauded for his innovative and varied forms, which draw upon the artist's broad intellectual interests in science and literature, as well as an intuitive and emotional response to form and material.

 

ATTPAC (Concert Under the Stars)

8 p.m. Explosions in the Sky, Annette Strauss Square

Easily one of the most intense live bands ever, their sound proves to be every bit as triumphant as their name implies. Equal parts romance and tragedy, their beautiful melodies have the tendency to ignite into head-spinning walls of noise.

 

Crow Collection (Free Beer Tastings and Multi-lingual Singing)

After Dark Karaoke with DJ Mark Ridlen

10:30 p.m.-midnight, Grand Gallery

Cool down from a day of yoga and join DJ Mark Ridlen for a multimedia karaoke experience. Sip complimentary Asian beer and sign up to sing your favorite song in English, Mandarin, Japanese and Hindi. Supplies limited; must show proof of age to be served alcohol. Thanks For Reading
