Bishop Arts and some of the surrounding area will be hopping April 25 when Oak Cliff treats its residents to its first annual Art Crawl. Local galleries and studios will host their own free receptions and festivities, including the Soda Pop Gallery’s Beatles tribute art show featuring a live DJ, go-go girls and Jonathan Atterbury with Boomstick Comics’ very own Jeremy Megert playing acoustic covers. 12 organizations are participating in the event, include the Bishop Arts Studio Co-Op, Ice House Cultural center, and the Texas Theater.

A map of the crawl indicates how close–and far–some of the studios are from each other. Bike Friendly Oak Cliff is hosting a go-at-your-own-pace bike ride (make sense, since they’re co-producing the event with Photopol.us) so visitors can travel from spot to spot in their own biker gangs, if you will.
Andrea Roberts, Photopol.us founder, says the event is a chance for residents of outlying Dallas neighborhoods as well as Oak Cliff neighbors to see our artistic side.
"We’re looking at this as an opportunity to show the city as a whole what Oak Cliff has to contribute to the art economy," she says.
