Every year, Dallas comes to life with the first taste of spring. And while spring is coloring the streets with its blossoming flowers and deep shades of green, Visit Dallas is adding some artwork of its own. 

Dallas Arts Month has been held annually in the month of April after it was launched by Mayor Mike Rawlings in 2013 as Dallas Arts Week. In 2017, the artful week grew into an entire month of celebrating the city's vibrant and dynamic cultural scene.

The celebration, which is for Dallas residents and visitors of all ages, includes festivals, plays, concerts, exhibitions and literary events. In addition to ticketed events, there are several community events that are free and open to the public.

Phillip Jones, Visit Dallas president and CEO, says Dallas Arts Month is great for groups visiting Dallas for business. With a plethora of galleries and museums, Jones says there's always a special exhibit or concert to check out after a meeting. Business travelers are also encouraged to extend their stay to participate in various weekend celebrations.

"Dallas Arts Month is designed to foser creative learning and activity throughout the city while building awareness and appreciation for the work of Dallas artists and organizations, " Jones says. "The month-long celebration gives a chance for the city's talented artists to showcase their work and is an opportunity for Dallas residents to discover new art experiences."

In July, Chris Heeter, The Wild Institute and thousands of fans had to say goodbye to beloved speaker dog Tuu Weh.

With her fists closed tightly, Chris Heeter let her hands drop lightly to her sides, opening her palms widely and wildly. And with that small, simple motion, Heeter was unknowingly opening not just her hands, but her heart to a presence that would change her life as well as thousands of others.
