Art Prostitute Gallery is now The Public Trust. It is still owned and operated by Art Prostitute co-counder and Dallas Metroblogger, Brian Gibb. Art Prostitute the publication will keep the same name and continue on in the form of a biannual hardcover book. Brian Gibb is still co-owner and designer of Art Prostitute. The reason for the name change was merely to more clearly define both the gallery and the publication. All of that being said, the Public Trust will have its first opening this Saturday. The details are below.
