Dallas's key artistic leaders and special guests in thought-provoking conversations about the arts and the cultural landscape of the Metroplex. Moderated by KERA host and producer Jeff Whittington and presented in partnership with KERA's Art & Seek.
From Deep Ellum to Bishop Arts to Downtown’s East Quarter, Dallas buildings are a canvas for local artists. Murals mark our neighborhoods. They provide education opportunities—and the backdrop for that perfect Instagram shot. Hear KERA’s Jerome Weeks for a conversation with community arts organizers and the artists behind some of the city’s most memorable murals. Panelists include Janeil Engelstad, Jeremy Biggers, and Frank Campagna. State of the Arts is presented in partnership with KERA's Art&Seek.
The conversation highlights the new community development plan for the Dallas Arts District and other urban planning projects that are changing the arts landscape in Dallas.
