Visual Art in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex
My photograph, Shell.
Few cities have more art or better art than we now have in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex. From the second largest contemporary art museum in the U.S. to the world class Nasher Sculpture Center - there is lots going on!
The Dallas / Fort Worth area (called the Metroplex) also has anactive group of working artists, art centers, and many great privategalleries. In addition to our six major art museums, we have severalsmaller art museums that are very special. This non-commercial web sitelists them all with links and a few comments.
We also feature the art museums in Texas and the Southwest. Texas is truly State of the Arts! And Oklahoma is OK too!
We have some great art in Big D and Cowtown! Y'all come and see it!
Dallas / Fort Worth Art Gallery Openings
I am back posting D/FW Gallery Openings on the original page. It makes it easier to print out and take with you. I update the list when I get a new opening. On days with a lot of openings, I list by locations, which makes it much easier to play your trip. I will leave openings up for a week or two if you want to catch up on what you missed.
Enjoy, joel Sampson, editor
