M y late grandfather, John Geyer, was an artist. He attended Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, before starting his advertising career in New York City, art- directing and often hand-drawing the visuals used in major campaigns. During his spare time, and increasingly during retirement, he created his own art — most notably, photorealist paintings of everything from antique toys and Bloomingdale's bags to residential landscapes of classic cars parked outside Southern California bungalows. His work was represented by the late dealer Ivan Karp at his legendary, now shuttered, OK Harris gallery in SoHo. I have fond childhood memories spent there, with Papa (as I called him) teaching me how to look at art — not to just decide whether I liked it, but to examine brush strokes, observe nuances in color, study shapes and acknowledge the emotions a work evoked. Every time April rolls around, with its myriad art events — from the Irving Penn retrospective at the DMA (Thursday, April 14) to the Dallas Art Fair (Thursday, April 14 through Sunday, April 17) and the Frank Stella exhibition at The Modern in Fort Worth (Sunday, April 17) — I am reminded of Papa. He instilled in me a profound appreciation for those who create, whether they paint, sculpt or perform on stage. This issue celebrates that very notion: The incomparable journalist Lee Cullum talks with choreographer Jonah Bokaer and artist Daniel Arsham about the making of their multidisciplinary work Rules of the Game, which kicks off the DSO's Soluna festival next month. Arts editor Catherine D. Anspon spotlights 10 must-sees at the Dallas Art Fair, including first-time exhibitor Honor Fraser. It is worth noting that PaperCity specially commissioned the portrait of Fraser by photographer Danny Ghitis — a talented artist who lives and works in New York and has made images for the likes of Rolling Stone, The New York Times and Time. For an exclusive interview with the model turned gallery owner, click papercitymag. com. Contributor Patricia Mora gets deep with The Modern's chief curator, Michael Auping, in a tête-à-tête of philosophical proportions, and artist Michael Craig- Martin interviews fellow MTV Re:Define honoree artist Enoc Perez. It's a marvelous mix — one we hope will inspire you to see things through a more cultivated lens.

As someone with a deep-seated devotion to my planner, I'm taking serious pen to paper to keep everything straight. I invite you to do the same and join PaperCity at the Moschino Trunk Show at Forty Five Ten Thursday, April 7, with a personal appearance from the zany designer himself, Jeremy Scott. Then join us at the Roberto Cavalli boutique at NorthPark Center Wednesday, April 20, 6 to 8 pm, to mingle with Kimberly Schlegel Whitman, NorthPark Center's newly announced Fashion and Lifestyle Ambassador. Then on Thursday, April 21, 5 to 7 pm, PaperCity and Aria Stone Gallery present Wine and Stone, where wine selections coordinate with the region from which the stone originated. Stirring art events are also woven throughout the month: the PaperCity- sponsored MTV Re:Define (Friday, April 8), Dallas Art Fair (Thursday through Sunday, April 14 through 17) and Art Ball 2016 (Saturday, April 23), benefitting the Dallas Museum of Art. These events are so important to our city that we've devoted an entire section of this issue to what has now unofficially become Dallas Arts Month. Along with the multitude of features packed in this issue, be sure to check out for an extra dose of exclusives. A testament to the robust content is our page views, now averaging 760,000 per month and growing. We hope you'll find the content both in print and on the site inspiring. Enjoy! Briana Buxbaum Dallas Associate Publisher PC House + Art Art: What to see at Dallas Art Fair 39 Art: Michael Craig-Martin chats up Enoc Perez 40 W hen fashion designer Jeremy Scott came to town for TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art in October, he caused quite the stir: On the arm of socialite and philanthropist Nancy Rogers (who was wearing a neon graffiti-covered gown he designed for her), he was all sex and rock 'n' roll in a tuxedo sans shirt, his muscular chest catching as much attention as the contemporary art on display. Our city's top fashion types fell head-over-heels for Scott's megawatt magnetism, so that same pack will no doubt flock to Forty Five Ten when he visits the store Thursday, April 7, 3 to 5 pm, for his Spring/Summer 2016 Moschino and Jeremy Scott trunk shows — the former riffed on the playful idea of a couture construction zone; the latter seemed a mod nod to Barbie in a vibrant pop-art way. He'll also sign his namesake book, Jeremy Scott (Rizzoli), which launched at Art Basel Miami Beach two years ago. Scott's PA isn't the only event on Forty Five Ten's packed spring calendar. For the full list of trunk shows and designer drop- ins — including a visit from beloved cosmetics darling Edward Bess Friday, April 8 — click Forty Five Ten, 4510 McKinney Ave., 214.559.4510; Christina Geyer Great Scott!
