Bike Friendly Oak Cliff pedals in for DADA’s Fall Gallery Walk
Cyclists will meet and bike 4.2 miles together to the gallery event.
DALLAS An avid gallery-hopper, I always look forward to the seasonal gallery walks from DADA, short for Dallas Art Dealers Association. They’re an opportunity to visit some of my favorite galleries while enjoying a more festive atmosphere than I sometimes might encounter.
In just a couple of weeks, it will be time for DADA’s Fall Gallery Walk, and, this time, the walk comes with a fun and interesting twist.
Cyclists of any and all ages will meet at 1:30 p.m. at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center on Jefferson Boulevard. Bikers will then leave the OCCC and ride to Royal Sixty, right here in the neighborhood. I know it sounds far, but the ride is actually only 4.2 miles; easy!
At Royal Sixty, riders will stop for refreshments provided by the talented Wendy Krispin before visiting art galleries in the district either on their own or on a guided tour with DADA Director Lisa Taylor.
The Fall Gallery Walk will feature 40 galleries, not just those in the neighborhood, and will last from 2 to 8 p.m. If you’re exploring on your own make sure to map out your route and check with the individual galleries concerning guided tours and panel discussions with some of the featured artists.
The party continues even after the tour of the neighborhood for those who want to continue their gallery-hopping at the Turner House after a ride back to Oak Cliff.
If you’re interested in the Bike Swarm and Gallery Walk, or even just the Walk, visit www.dallasartdealers.org for more info and a map of the route.
