Creating “Lil Tex” to help benefit local area charities and generating the highest bid of the show.

The event concept is creative, energized and filled with the fascinating process of seeing artists at work right before your eyes:  it’s the annual Art Conspiracy in Dallas, benefiting a different charitable cause every year and showcasing some of the region’s top creative talents. 

Since its founding in 2005, Art Conspiracy has raised more than $140,000 for local area charities, along with championing the dynamic creative talents of local leading artists.  This year’s event benefited Girls Rock Dallas (a rock camp that empowers girls ages 8-17 through music education), and the W. T. White Academy for Visual and Performing Arts Ceramics program.

James Warton, Assoc. AIA, LEED AP BD+C, and Studio Director at 5G was one of the featured artists at this year’s Art Conspiracy event, and his work sold for $1,050 to benefit Girls Rock and WT White Academy’s Ceramics program.

ArtCon’s Meagan Dahl reports that 2,000 people attended the annual auction and party on Nov. 10.
