Home to one of the top ten private contemporary art museums in the country, one could definitely conclude that Dallas is becoming a significant force in the cultural world.
In recent years the city has continued to foster a robust art scene that could very well compete on a global scale. What has prompted this seemingly overnight transformation and what has made Dallasites embrace their community’s rich, new interest in the arts?
The city can now proudly boasts a long list of top notch museums and exhibition venues including the Dallas Museum of Art, The Kimbell Museum, Dallas Contemporary, The Nasher Sculpture Center, Meadows Museum, the Goss-Michael Foundation and the Dallas Arts District.
Every year international artists and galleries flock to Dallas for the Dallas Art Fair for an opportunity to exhibit their work to a global audience. The Fair is an annual event that hosts prominent national and international art dealers and galleries exhibiting painting, sculpture, works on paper, photography, video, and installation by modern and contemporary artists.
If all this is not reason enough to place Dallas as a desired destination at the top of the international art scene, the amazing lists of weekly events are.
With the continuous support of participating venues, there is never a shortage of exhibits to go to, so Haute Living put together a list of art events not to miss out on this weekend.
