$8 Student
$12 DAC Members

This World Made Itself is a multimedia live performance combining projected animation and the artist’s own shadow silhouette, creating a unique and theatrical spectacle.  The piece is a visually and musically rich journey through the history of the earth, from the universe’s epic beginnings to the complex world of humanity.

The Annual Members’ Environmental Exhibit provides DAC members with the opportunity to create artwork inspired by the natural landscapes of the Southwest region.  This non-juried, salon-style show is open to all current DAC members and there is no fee to enter.

DAC is grateful for the generous support of our exhibit sponsors who enable culturally innovative programs to exist in our community.  The Annual Members’ Exhibit is sponsored by Friends of the Gallery, Mary Lyn and Richard Ballantine, Don and Judy Hayes, Russell EngineeringOxford Asset Management and New Face Productions.


DAC is proud to engage a broad, diverse artist community. We strive to provide artists space for expression, creation and promotion, and as we continue to grow our artist community we hope you join us!
