Art, Art Everywhere

Scenes from recent visits to the DMA and the Nasher (i.e. my happy places)

It's Art Fair week here in Dallas, with no shortage of exhibits and events and performances and tours and talks. Let's just say some serious cultural goodness goes down.

The week-o-art also has me thinking about how far our fair city has come in the 17(!!) years that I've lived here -- a thriving arts district, Klyde Warren Park, the DMA, the Nasher Sculpture Center, the Contemporary, the Crow Collectionthe Meadows Museum, a slew of excellent galleries and art spaces (Barry Whistler, Talley Dunn, the Power Station, and Conduit, I'm talking to you). It's enough to take a girl from being a reluctant Dallasite to, well, a proud denizen.

Well played Dallas. Well played.
