Arts & Culture

Throughout its history, Deep Ellum has also been a place for visual artists to come and make a name for themselves through a vibrant community of galleries, street murals, public art, and other public displays of creativity. Deep Ellum’s many music venues, restaurants and businesses have commissioned local artists to paint murals on their walls for decades. This tradition continues today with over 100 creative, colorful paintings displayed across the district.

In 1992, the contemporaneously formed Deep Ellum Community Association invited artists to paint the walls of the Good-Latimer tunnel. The tunnel was repainted frequently, becoming a dynamic and iconic entrance into the neighborhood. Local artist and gallery owner, Frank Campagna, remembers the effort as “pure creative harmony with a dash of perfect mayhem.” In 2007, the tunnel was demolished to make way for the DART Green Line train but the art wasn’t gone for long. With community-wide mural projects, the winsome Traveling Man sculptures commissioned by DART along the new line, and a thriving gallery scene, Deep Ellum continues to be a place where art is created, shared, and sold.

Since 1994, Deep Ellum has hosted The Deep Ellum Arts Festival, which began as a one-block street party. The free community festival now consists of over 100 musical artists performing on five stages, 200 juried visual artists displaying and selling their work, spontaneous street performances, and food and beverages served by over 30 restaurants. In 2019, the first Deep Ellum Open Studios event was held, enabling visitors and locals alike to gain an inside look at the spaces of Deep Ellum’s live/work artists, tattooists, recording studios, and more. The event reflected previous events such as art walks and included outdoor art markets, live muraling, and music.

Deep Ellum is also home to many art-based and creative businesses, including photographers, tattoo artists, gallery owners, recording studios,
and graphic designers.
