VIP reception 7-8pm | Open to all ticket holders 8-11pm
Held at The Daphne House, an ethereal Victorian home in Travis Heights
1419 Newning Ave, Austin, TX 78704
DreamLife will celebrate the many ways that artists, past and present, have found dreams as a source of inspiration and a space for exploring the imagination. They’ve welcomed dreams as provocateurs and geneses for new work. By actualizing the subconscious, artists have shown us what dreaming looks like: from portrayals of sleepers and dreamers in bed, to mental dreamscapes, to the visual symbols that create narratives. The subconscious is fantastically colorful, acutely personal, and a universal experience: everyone makes art in their dreams.
