letter publisher STEVEN VISNEAU, SISTERBROTHER MGMT 14 A pril ushers in one of the most exciting times of the year in Dallas, for what we've come to call Dallas Arts Month. With an almost dizzying lineup of events, exhibitions, speaker series, and more, the city is alive with local, national, and international visitors gathering for the Dallas Art Fair and related happenings. In its ninth year, the Dallas Art Fair hosts nearly 100 galleries, including the strongest international showing to date. Preview events begin Thursday, April 6, with the main fair extending through Sunday, April 9, at Fashion Industry Gallery. New this year is a music festival featuring local talent. The Dallas Music Experience, presented by Artist Uprising, is gratis to the public and takes place on the venue lawn Friday, April 7, 4 to 7 pm. More details at There's so much ground to cover, and Catherine D. Anspon, our executive editor, visual arts + features, gives you a complete and colorful rundown of the best of Dallas Arts Month, pages 46 through 48. Also tracking the arts buzz this month is managing editor Linden Wilson, who introduces us to four visionaries — all with Texas ties — who are taking on the art world from Los Angeles to New York to a crawlspace turned art experience in Dallas. Admittedly, we kicked off Dallas Arts Month a bit early, with the mega- watt, PaperCity-sponsored MTV Re:Define Gala and Art Auction, which benefits Dallas Contemporary and the MTV Staying Alive Foundation, an organization committed to HIV and AIDS prevention and education. Late last month, the sold-out event was a smash hit, chaired by our editor at large Max Trowbridge and featuring an outstanding art auction curated by Neville Wakefield. We're counting days until next year. Much to read. Much to see. We look forward to crossing paths with you often this month. Briana Buxbaum Dallas publisher
