Celebrating the Evolution of the Dallas Art Community

The Dallas Museum of Art is displaying works from around Texas and celebrating the evolution of the many artists and artworks from the state's history. With both online and in-museum exhibits, there are many opportunities for those in Dallas to learn more about the state's rich cultural heritage.

[...] Even though I live in New York, I can’t see those kinds of works on display here. Then, I see the rest of their permanent collections.

But especially in contemporary collections, we see a lot of cookie-cutter approaches to buying art since the 1960s, at least.

So I both applaud the Dallas Museum of Art and chastise it, a bit, for an effort it is making regarding Texas art. The bad first: why did I have to find out about it on my own, instead of receiving a press release — as I do for the museum’s exhibitions, staff changes, etc.?
