Bring Your Own Beamer Cedars One-Night-Only Exhibition: Saturday, October 14, 7-11PM OPEN CALL FREE (Suggested donation $5)
The Cedars Union and The MAC are pleased to present Dallas’ first adaptation of Bring Your Own Beamer Cedars (BYOB) on Saturday, October 14, 7-11PM. This one-night-only outdoor exhibition invites artists and creators of all disciplines to bring their own projector (often referred to as a “beamer” in Europe) and media player and cast visual content onto the walls of buildings throughout the Cedars, showcasing the vibrant arts community and walkability of the historic neighborhood. BYOB Cedars consists of an open call to the public and an exhibition of time-based works by invited artists, and an experimental music performance organized by Dallas Ambient Music Nights from 8-10:30PM. Delicious banh mi sandwiches by Sandwich Hag will be for sale.
In support of artists and arts organizations affected by Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath, The Cedars Union and The MAC will collect donations to benefit the Harvey Arts Recovery Fund.
REQUIREMENTS: If you are interested in participating, simply show up the evening of the event with a projector of any kind (LED, LCD, mini, overhead, slide carousel, homemade, etc.), media player, and your own time-based artwork – something old, or new, or experimental.
Participants are encouraged to arrive anytime between 7-10PM, and may check in at The Cedars Union or The MAC where you will be directed to an available projection location. Maps of participating buildings will be available at check-in locations.
Venues include The Cedars Union, The MAC, and various locations in between.

Damas y caballeros, la nueva etapa de projectionmapping ha llegado… ya habíamos visto antes experimentos emocionantes con objetos en movimiento, pero este trabajo los hace ver como un tímido experimento.
