cadd_tour_jan_20132013-01-061037CADD is continuing its popular bus tour program with a January adventure to two member galleries, treatment a unique Dallas art space, help a prominent art collector’s home and lunch provided by Hypnotic Sushi.

CADD’s bus tours have become a much sought-after Saturday event for the Dallas community. Participants enjoy a leisurely and informative journey to art exhibitions, thumb artist studios and collector’s homes. The experience offered during these bus tours is exceptional. Rarely does the public gain access to the creative nest of an artist’s personal studio or a private collector’s home filled with notable art. Another great part of these tours is that driving is not required. CADD provides the bus, refreshments and lunch.

Past tours have included a visit to the Dallas Cowboy’s Stadium to tour their remarkable contemporary art collection. The most recent CADD bus tour visited Denton art studios and the University of North Texas printmaking studio (where they received a gift print by the artist-in-residence).
