The Dallas Museum of Art
Dallas Museum of Art
For one to form a road to reality one most travel by way of pictures. More importantly, Art. The Dallas Museum of Art has more than just art. It has heart and no better road to be traveling.
Transcended to a time period of new-modern brick architecture that sits delicately in the middle of Downtown Dallas, Texas, DMA is becoming a forerunner in culturally significant and periodically inspiring artwork. Perusing around the corners and hallways you can feel the lively buzz of the museum. With children running down corridors expressing their artistic dreams and families gathering around the cafe for a sip of coffee and dialogue about the latest exhibitions. Including, International Pop and traveling collection entitled, “Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots.”
Blind Spots, an extraordinary collection, curated by, Gavin Delahunty, makes a decisive contribution to the development of the museums aesthetic by providing Pollocks works and a chance that may not come around more than once. With Dallas rising to the newly accredited ranks of one of the best art cities in America.
However, the Dallas Museum of Art, does more than offer some of the best artistic exhibitions in the nation. It offers a place for people to experience art allowing a home for their inner-creativity to thrive. Although, art can create expression and develop a narrative that incites change within an individual, it is the artistic experience an individual undergoes that allows them to examine critical self-awareness. As the famous Marcel Duchamp explains it, “it is the spectator who makes the pictures.”
The museums atmosphere is one that is built for manifesting the creativity within every individual it touches. Attempting to expand the canon and historical landscape of culturally challenging time periods from the era of abstract expressionist movement influenced by individuals like Picasso, Miro and Ernst to the exploitative and shocking period of pop influenced by partitions like Warhol and Lichtenstein. The Dallas Art Museum adds an innovative and striking lure to their exhibitions by offering an over and above provision of classic visitor information, extraordinary reception and help in the form of guided tours and workshops and interesting multimedia programs integrated into the exhibits.
However, DMA, knows one real truth about art. It is about the people. And this museum continues to give and give while reinstating what it means to have heart.
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 23,000 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 welcomes over 650,000 visitors annually and 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. In January 2013, the DMA returned to a free general admission policy and launched DMA Friends, the first free museum membership program in the country, which currently has over 100,000 members.
