The MAC and The Cedars Union
Are Pleased to Present
Bring Your Own Beamer Cedars
a One-Night-Only Event
and Fundraiser for Harvey Arts Recovery Fund
Saturday, October 14, 7-11PM
The MAC and The Cedars Union are pleased to present Dallas' first adaptation of Bring Your Own Beamer
Cedars (BYOB) on Saturday, October 14, 7-11PM. This one-night-only outdoor exhibition invites artists and
creators of all disciplines to bring their own projector (often referred to as a "beamer" in Europe) and
media player and cast visual content onto the walls of buildings throughout the Cedars, showcasing
the vibrant arts community and walkability of the historic neighborhood. BYOB Cedars consists of an
open call to the public and an exhibition of time-based works by Chuck & George, Adam Fung, Julie
Libersat, Sean P. Miller, Kris Pierce, Carolyn Sortor, Alison Starr, Fabiola Valenzuela, among others, and
a performance organized by Dallas Ambient Music Nights from 8-10:30PM.
Participate or observe - everyone is invited! Those interested in participating need only bring a projector
of any kind (LED, LCD, mini, overhead, slide carousel, homemade, etc.), media player, and their
time-based artwork - something old, or new, or experimental. Participants are encouraged to arrive
anytime between 7-10PM, and may check in at The MAC or The Cedars Union where they will be
directed to an available location. Maps will be available at any participating venue.
Venues include The MAC, The Cedars Union, and various locations in between.
In support of artists and arts organizations affected by Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath, The MAC
and The Cedars Union will collect donations to benefit the Harvey Arts Recovery Fund.
Harvey Arts Recovery Fund was launched by not-for-profit organizations dedicated to serving the
Greater Houston arts and cultural sector. The Fund will provide aid to individual artists who suffered
personal and professional losses during Hurricane Harvey and the flooding that followed, as well
as financially assist small and mid-sized arts and cultural organizations rebuilding after Harvey.

, an open-source idea initiated by Rafaël Rozendaal in Berlin, is an exploration of the medium of
projection. According to its website, "BYOB is a celebration of the new world we live in and a glimpse
of what computing could look like in the future. Today the internet is confined to screens. Tomorrow
information will surround us, composing our surfaces, defining our spaces, enmeshing itself with the ether.
A moving image is never an object, and when it is coupled with the increased flexibility of portable
projection, the realm of experience quickly expands." Since its first iteration, this exhibition has been
held worldwide. Find out more here: www.byobworldwide.com
