AURORA - Light of Convergence

Last year the Aurora Night exhibit at the arts district was only a glimpse of 2013.  This year the Whole Arts District will be converted into an amazing Light, Video, Sound & related Media Exhibit. Flora street will be the center of this huge BLOCK PARTY.

Aurora 2011 was the art event that I enjoyed the best that year and have been looking forward to the 2013 Event ever since.

The Aurora Project is a free contemporary art event centered in the rapidly developing Dallas Arts District. The project presents interactive new media artworks such as light , video, performance, and sound in exciting and unexpected public spaces. For on unforgettable evening, the sunset signals the transformation of the 68-acres of downtown Dallas into one of the nations largest outdoor exhibitions of this cutting-edge medium. The Aurora Project offers a valuable opportunity for collaboration between hundreds of local, national, and international artists, alongside the Dallas Arts District, for an inclusive artistic experience and community engagement.

Every Museum in the ARTS DISRICT will have a variety of events as well.

    If you no longer plan to attend please change your RSVP to NOT GOING - Try to print copy of attached map or have on smart phone
    http://www.dallasaurora.com/plan-ahead/

    THE PLAN - Plan below is a goal and estimate only - We will just GO WITH THE FLOW - because there will be unexpected hidden treasures that will blow our minds and take more time to enjoy :D

    Also, we are such a big group and variety of tastes so I do not expect for all of us to remain together as night goes on - I ONLY REQUIRE THAT YOU ENJOY - HAVE A BLAST

    1 · October 18, 2013

  • Christina

    Are we to meet up the Chop House between 6-6:30pm? :)

    1 · October 15, 2013

    • David

      Meetup at Chop house is 6:00 - AURORA meetup time is 7:00. I will be at meetup point from 7:00 to 7:45.

      3 · October 16, 2013

    • Christina

      Thanks David, tentative right now. Will know abit later today.

      October 18, 2013

  • Kathryn T

    Not sure what time I'll be getting there. I'll keep an eye out for the group if I don't make by the meeting time.

    October 18, 2013

  • Quell&El

    I think we r going I want 2 meet up

    Hi David,

    I'm new here so not familiar with the area. What is parking like? Where do you suggest I park for dinner and where on Flora St.?

    October 14, 2013

    • David

      The pre-event dinner at Chop House Burger is on Main and Akard - The Aurora event is all over Arts District - FLORA street will be completely blocked off to traffic. I suggest any meter off Ross or San Jacinto - meters are FREE after 6:00

      October 15, 2013

    • Renee

      You might also consider the DART fast rail or parking at the west village and taking the McKinney free electric trolley car to downtown. Maybe not your thing but for me it is GREAT for avoiding traffic for downtown events. Only an idea.

      2 · October 16, 2013

  • David

    Very important - print a copy of this map/guide
    http://www.dallasaurora.com/plan-ahead/
    On corner of Crockett and FLORA (point #25) on the steps will be our meeting point. I will be there from 7:00-7:45 with 'FUNNY FACE' balloons

    2 · October 15, 2013

  • David

    Meeting Point will be area right behind The Cathedral Virgin De Guadalupe on FLORA street - accross the street of front of the MEYERSON SYMPHONY CENTER - at 7:00PM - Reason this place should be better because at 7:10 The BELLS of the Cathedral will ring to announce the start of AURORA :D - I will have balloons with Happy Face and be by Mural on North-East side of Cathedral where there are STEPS to the Mural and PATIO area. I will be on the STEPS :)

    We can mingle for while and @ 7:45 we can go up Flora Street to One Arts Plaza and back - I wil try to follow schedule of AURORA below and end the night at The Nasher for Live Band ALPHA REV However - there are WAY too many events FUN going on at same throughout the ARTS DISTRICT - and we are over 100+ going - Since everyone has different tastes - I really do not expect that we will all remain together at night progresses. http://www.dallasmuseumofart.or...­

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
