“We are thrilled to bring Artist v. Architect to One Arts Plaza this year. The event is a natural fit due to the fact that our building anchors the Arts District and the people who live, work, and dine at One Arts Plaza all have a heightened sense of interest in the thriving art and cultural scene in Dallas. Not to mention the event is just plain fun. We’re hoping it is a huge success and we can make this event an annual occurrence.” – Lucy Billingsley, Billingsley Company

Throughout the evening you will also have the opportunity to bid via silent and live auction on all of the created works. The official auction beneficiary for 2013 is Family Compass, formally known as the Child Abuse Prevention Center (www.family-compass.org).
