Dallas Museum Of Art


[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”892″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]Established in 1903, the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) is among the 10 largest art museums in the country and is distinguished by its commitment to research, innovation and public engagement. At the heart of the Museum and its programs is its global collection, which encompasses more than 24,000 works and spans 5,000 years of history, representing a full range of world cultures. Located in the nation’s largest arts district, the Museum acts as a catalyst for community creativity, engaging people of all ages and backgrounds with a diverse spectrum of programming, from exhibitions and lectures to concerts, literary events, and dramatic and dance presentations. Since the Museum’s return to free general admission in 2013, the DMA has welcomed more 3.2 million visitors. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]


Today is #WomensEqualityDay and also two weeks before artist and activist @kimothyjoy takes the stage at Arts & Letters Live to discuss her new book, "That's What She Said". Here's a glimpse into this work, which blends watercolor and short biography to showcase the contributions of more than 50 influential female leaders and role models (including this lovely spotlight on Frida Kahlo) whose words remind us that we must never give up the fight for a more just and equitable society. Visit DMA.org/ALL to find out more and get tickets. . . . #FridaKahlo #KimothyJoy #ArtsandLettersLive #WomenArtists #Equality #Watercolor #MyDMA

Plan your visit to the DMA this week to marvel at our European Art Collection’s new and buzz-worthy acquisition. This German Renaissance masterpiece, titled “The Descent from the Cross” by artist Derick Baegert, was painted around 1480-1490 and is this first work by the artist to enter any museum in the United States. See it for free in our European Art Gallery on Level 2. . . . #MyDMA #GermanRenaissance #EuropeanArt #GermanArt #DerickBaegert #Masterpiece #DallasMuseumofArt

Local artist @melremmers drew inspiration from our #LauraOwens exhibition to create wonderfully fantastical paintings of her own. See her finished works and check out our interview with her about her process on the DMA’s Uncrated blog, in which she highlights connecting with #nature, ‘going big,’ and fearlessly using #glitterglue along the way. How will YOU be inspired by Laura Owens? . . . Photo credit: Stevie Hudspeth #ArtistSpotlight #DFWArtist #Inspiration #BehindtheScenes

Check what this reviewer is saying:

Best place to go for a day outing. General admission is free, just have to pay for parking only if you want to park in their parking garage or you can try and find curb side parking. Great place for friends, families, dates etc![/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”890″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Make sure you follow @dallasmuseumart on instagram to keep up with the latest changes to their Eats & Drinks! menu and follow us at @newtodallasguide for even more adventures around your favorite city[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
