Crown of Creativity

Mon 02 May Mon 30 May

May’s charity partner is Big Thought, a Dallas-based impact nonprofit that closes the opportunity gap by equipping all youth in marginalized communities with the skills and tools they need to imagine and create their best lives and a better world.

 The exhibit, titled “Crown of Creativity,” will showcase the creative efforts of local children participating in Big Thought’s Artivism program. The exhibition features a mélange of young participants’ portraits, which the youths have embellished utilizing digital tools to create statements of self-expression, showcasing their individual “Crowns of Creativity.” There will also be an interactive “crown” that guests can take their picture with and share on social media with the hashtag #bigthought and the location @GalleriaDallas.

“We are incredibly excited to partner with Galleria Dallas on this installation,” said Sasha Davis, Big Thought’s artistic director of Creative Voices. “We wanted to explore our relationship to creativity and asked our young creators this: What would make up your crown of creativity? Within some of the pieces, you may find hidden words, pop-cultural references and childhood inspirations. We hope their creativity inspires audiences to ask themselves that same question.”

The exhibit at Galleria Dallas will be featured from May 2-30, 2022. Big Thought will also be the charity beneficiary of the Galleria Dallas Alley Market held May 13-14, 2022.
