As you continue to get to know these amazing convicts during Bail Money Week, we would like to tell you a little more about Art Conspiracy and what we do. Over the last 11 years, we have been stirring up the creative community, proving that when this community comes together for a good cause, amazing things happen. But as we expand, never fear! Our signature model is not going anywhere. We stand by our promise to bring you the Art Con-style, in-a-warehouse, art and music extravaganza every Fall, welcome to any and all. There is, however, another side to Art Conspiracy that is rarely recognized.LFL-2015_010

What you may not know about Art Con, is the before and/or after aspect of what we’ve dubbed “Art Construct” projects. Not only does the team coordinate incredible experiences, but they also create and build year-round for events. For instance, for the past two years, one incredibly talented member of the volunteer team partnered with bcWorkshop to build Little Free Libraries around Dallas – leaving spaces altered for the love of the written word.LFL-2015_019

This is just one example of what a team of dreamers have built. Art Con works with a move-it-forward or upcycle approach to building structures. Things like stage domes built out of a recycled sprinkler system and painters plastic – you may not notice the differences or the materials, but every 2×4 and sheet of plywood matters. With your help, Art Con can expand its reach, continue this charge and bring in even more dreamers to create alongside us. Bail out or Keep in a criminal to help us raise the roofs (literally).
