Not the mall or a museum, rather shots of the intensely artful (not to mention delightfully odd) local shop, Grange Hall.
Carolina has a good "review" of this place from her recent trip to Dallas...
For me, there is nothing more satisfying than seeing art in person. I'm obsessed with sharing this passion with the girls, so I've always vowed that I would expose them to as much art as humanly possible during their childhoods. Despite this mission, I've only very recently taken Audrey to a actual museum or gallery...(I know, I know bad mom.)
So when she asked me a few months ago if we could go "back to the museum," I was genuinely perplexed. I quizzed her on what this "museum" looked like, what we did there, when we went, etc, etc... to which she responded, (with slight annoyance in her voice) "you know, that place where you tried on lots of clothes and bought me the giant pink cookie."
Ahh yes, the mall... Bad, bad, bad mom.
In my defense (lest you think I'm in the process of raising a frivolous, cultureless, soulless bimbo), the mall I had taken her to is owned by the Nasher family and filled to the brim with amazing art and sculpture. So it's sort of a museum...right?
Needless to say, I'm now on a mission to make up for lost time. One of the top items on the list is to take Audrey to every museum in the area before the end of the year, and I'm proud to report that we're making pretty good progress... especially if the mall counts.
