Collage of images of well-known women in history with text that reads Women's History Month

During the month of March, we celebrate women and the contributions and achievements they have made throughout history, culture, arts, and society. The Office of Arts and Culture offers a list of events celebrating strong women all over Dallas, from our cultural centers and our partners!

  • The Women’s Chorus of Dallas Presents – Voices of Women 8: Spiritual Sojourns 
    • Moody Performance Hall (2520 Flora St.)
    • Saturday, March 25, 2023 @ 7:30 p.m.
    • The Women’s Chorus of Dallas will be joined by the Texas Woman’s University 2 Concert Choir, women of the St. Luke’s “Community” Church Chorale, and student singers from Dallas ISD. The choirs will perform the world premiere of “Let’s Celebrate Us” by Dr. Rosephanye Powell as well as other compositions and spiritual arrangements by Dr. Powell.

  • Adriane McCray: MVMTLS: Movement of Lone Stars 
    • South Dallas Cultural Center (3400 S Fitzhugh Avenue)
    • Show will run from through – March 24, 2023
    • A multi-media exhibition by Adriane McCray centers on a film excavation of a Black collective memory with South Dallas starring as a supporting character. The film’s sonic landscape is shaped around interviews that took place in the quarantine lockdown of 2020, tracing the memories of various Dallas residents on the subject of their childhoods. Its use of collected archival footage, present-day photography, home videos, and aged photographs creates a tapestry that travels from moment to moment in stark contrast to the environment in which these conversations took place. It is a candid peak at the power of collective memory – one that tracks the movement of these Lone Stars and yields a fragile truth and sacredness of the Black community.

  • Krista Chalkley: Uncertain Beacons
    • Oak Cliff Cultural Center (223 W. Jefferson Blvd.)
    • Show will run from through – March 24, 2023
    • In uncertain beacons, Chalkley considers perspective and its influence on our individual perception of reality. Referencing zodiac signs and their constellations, the works illustrate varying personalities and viewpoints through these widely recognized astrological categories. Each of the 12 signs, classified by the sun’s orbital location at the time of birth, also have strong associations to personal traits, tendencies, and values, and in some cases can even carry preconceived, biased connotations. Krista Chalkley (they/them) is a multidisciplinary artist, curator, and arts administrator based in Dallas, TX. Krista received their BA in Visual and Performing Arts from The University of Texas at Dallas in 2018. Their work has been exhibited at local venues such as Arts Fort Worth, Ro2 Art, and the AT&T Showcase gallery in the Discovery District alongside works by Andy Warhol, Kehinde Wiley, and others.
