It isn’t truly springtime in Dallas until the SpeedBump Art Tour takes over Oak Cliff (or, “the Cliff,” as it is affectionately called)—and this year’s festival is running today, May 20, from 12-6PM. Started in 2000, SpeedBump claims it is both the longest running and “most exciting” art tour in the Cliff, and they might not be wrong. This year’s tour includes twenty stops; participants range from longtime favorites like Chuck & George, Deadbolt Studios, and Oil & Cotton, to Speedbump newcomers like Oak Cliff Pottery and Chris Bingham. See a full list below.
And when the tour is over make sure to stop by the afterparty at Mighty Fine Arts from 6-9PM. In conjunction with the gallery’s current exhibition, The High Show, the event will feature poetry, art and music.
Participating artists include:
Chuck & George
Brad Ford Smith
Sour Grapes Studio
Drywall Studios (Iris and Brennen Bechtol)
Oak Clif Pottery (James Olney)
The Mud Campaign ( H. Schenck & Esther Rose)
Oil & Cotten
