ART214 Juried Exhibition • 2020
As many of you have heard, Arts Month 2020 and its associated activities have been cancelled. Along with this and the current emergency declarations within our city and county related to COVID-19, we have decided to postpone the ART214 exhibition.
We are hoping to have the exhibition once things settle and public events are safe to attend, but are unsure at the current moment how long the shutdown will last. The City of Dallas and the Office of Arts and Culture will monitor the situation and will let you know as soon as a final decision is made.

Four cultural centers of the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture (OAC), Latino Cultural Center, Moody Performance Hall, Oak Cliff Cultural Center, and South Dallas Cultural Center, will present the 3rd annual ART214 Juried Exhibition, a multi-venue visual arts project that showcases the works of artists who live in Dallas and the greater North Texas region from late March to early June, 2020.
The Bath House Cultural Center, a regular venue of ART214, will not participate in the 2020 exhibition due to building renovations.
Through this exhibition, OCA hopes to discover and develop relationships with new artists, provide opportunities for artists to exhibit their work for the first time in one of our cultural centers or for the first time ever, and give artists who have previously exhibited at one cultural center an opportunity to show their work at a different center.
This collaborative project will also draw in new audiences who have never been to (or even heard of) our cultural centers, resulting in a cross pollination of audiences who frequent a specific center but have never experienced the others.
ART214 is part of Dallas Arts Month, a city-wide celebration of Dallas arts that was first launched by Mayor Mike Rawlings in 2013. Arts Month is designed to build awareness for and appreciation of the work of Dallas artists and organizations and foster creative learning and activity throughout the city. Residents and visitors are encouraged to participate in the events and programming offered by arts and cultural institutions from all disciplines.
