Homeland Security General Store was a temporary installation during the Cedars Open Studios on November 21st 2015. It involved several local businesses, artisans and community initiatives that were not included in the Cedars Open Studios roster. It’s aim was to bring attention to the work of these individuals who bring a unique beauty and experience to living in the Cedars neighborhood. It included Re-Gallery owner Wanda Dye’s own BBQ sauce, granola from Wheat & Sour, herbs from the Cedars Community Garden, artisinal bondage rope from Dallas Kink, coffee from Full City Rooster and an album with Lily Taylor and T-shirts from local businesses Ham-Hula, Lee Harvey’s and Dallas’ oldest bar the Passtime Tavern. Our goal was to give another platform as well as a platform for all the local producers that we know and love.
