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."

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
