The Cedars Union Is Turning an Old Ice Cream Factory Into an Art Space
The opening of the workspace facility puts The Cedars Union "incubator of the arts" one step closer to fulfilling its mission of serving artists and nurturing the arts community in North Texas, as well as changing the brick building on the corner of Ervay and Griffin.

Working visual artists of all disciplines are invited to apply now at The Cedars Union, an arts incubator in Dallas’ vibrant Cedars neighborhood just southwest of downtown Dallas. The Cedars Union is opening an Annex facility located at 1219 S. Ervay Street that will offer micro-studio spaces, access to professional artist tools, and meeting space, as well as professional development programs. The Cedars Union’s goal is to provide a community-oriented environment that supports artists at many stages of their careers.
The Cedars Union and The MAC are pleased to present Dallas’ first adaptation of Bring Your Own Beamer Cedars (BYOB) on Saturday, October 14, from 7-11 p.m. 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 consist of an open call to the public and an exhibition of time-based works by Nick Bontrager, Chuck and George, Adam Fung, Julie Libersat, Sean P. Miller, Christ Nielsen, Kris Pierce, Carolyn Sortor, Alison Starr, Tramaine Townshend, Fabiola Valenzuela, among others, and a performance organized by Dallas Ambient Music Nights from 8-10:30 p.m. Local vendor Sandwich Hag will be selling delicious banh mi onsite.
