girlShow 2012
ArtLoveMagic selected Dallas Light and Sound to provide audio, lighting, and staging for the main stage and for the Blue Room for the 2012 edition of girlShow.

ArtLoveMagic was founded in January of 2007 by Michael Lagocki, Justin Nygren, and David Rodriguez. Our inspiration was the belief that a staggering amount of artistic talent in our area (Dallas/Fort Worth) was going unrecognized and/or underdeveloped. They knew from personal experiences that artists, writers, and musicians thrive when they work together in creative environments. Today ArtLoveMagic is nearing their 100th unique event and have worked with countless artists and performers in the DFW area. The organization participates in most of the major local festivals and has worked with dozens of local business, schools, and organizations to bring live art and music to the city.
