We’ve spent the last few weeks counting heads and numbers, and the short of it is MOUNTED was a huge success. We brought in over 400 attendees, sold amazing works of art, and were able to raise the funds we need to throw Art Con 9 on November 16th.

None of this could be accomplished (seriously, none of it would happen) without the work of our volunteers, the support of our sponsors, the bands, Black Swan Saloon, food trucks Nammi and Coolhaus, Art & Seek and of course this year’s beneficiary, My Possibilities.

Sixty (60) volunteers, a veritable army, came to help us out this year, and we’ve never held a smoother SEED event. From door to auction to art checkout, we cannot deliver an event without every single one of you taking a piece and making it your own.

To the artists–we knew the idea and theme behind “MOUNTED” would be interesting, but little did we know you would bring forth the crazy, the imaginative, the wondrous. Thank you to you all.

To The Days, Bethan, and Calhoun, you kept the show alive between auctions, kept us riled, and blew our amazing venue Life In Deep Ellum apart with your eclectic tunes.

And finally, to our sponsors. You bring the media, the monetary support, the food and the booze. You add the shine.

All of this came together perfectly for MOUNTED, and it’s set us on track to throw one helluvan Art Con on November 16th. See you all there, and stay tuned for more info.
