OTHER NEWS: This past weekend, Melissa and I participated in the 2nd annual Art Conspiracy. The event brings together Dallas artists and musicians to raise money for a chosen benefit. This year, all proceeds went to La Reunion, an artist residency program. The Art Conspiracy was a smashing success with 1,100 guests this year and around $12,000 raised. Thank you to Sarah Jane Semrad and the rest of the event co-ordinators for their hard work. Look for photos and video (?) to be available on the site soon.
