Come See the Better Block Exhibition on April 10-11th

A coalition of area residents and community activists are putting together a rather interesting and dreamy art installation at the corner of Tyler St and Seventh St during this year’s Oak Cliff Art Crawl!  Check out this video to see a sneak preview!

Here’s the press release:

The Better Block Project
For two days only, neighborhood activists are exploring that concept by creating pop-up shops—a flower/gift shop, a coffee shop, kids art studio—in an experiment that’s part art installation, part political statement. This pre-war block with restrictive retail zoning and high car traffic is converting to a people-friendly environment by adding businesses most requested by locals and by reclaiming street space with outdoor seating, historic lighting, and more. Both new and existing businesses are celebrating this prospect with unique happenings at each location. The project is part of the greater Oak Cliff Art Crawl, which is being held on April 10th and 11th, 2010, and organized by Go Oak Cliff, a non-profit working to improve quality of life in North Oak Cliff.
