Friday Photos: The Dallas Arts District

Last year, the AT&T Performing Arts Center opened in Downtown Dallas, and everyone celebrated the completion of the Dallas Arts District.  October marks the one-year anniversary of the ATTPAC, and a month-long celebration has been planned throughout the Arts District, including performances, festivals, and more.    Art in October will end on October 31st with a Closing Celebration, including free admission to the DMA.  A complete calendar of events is available online.

Not only is the Arts District a great place to experience art and culture, but it’s also a wonderful place to explore architecture.  Below are some photos that I took between rainstorms this week of some of my favorite sites in the Arts District.  I hope you’ll bring your students down to explore the Arts District, too!

    México 200
    Dallas Museum of art
    June 18 – December 26

    In my opinion the objective of art is to humanize space and time; consequently, art objects illustrate human history. The Mexico 200 exhibition does just that in such an accessible and tangible way. These works of art cover over three millennia of Mexico’s history, and I didn’t need several plane tickets to appreciate it with my own eyes. Information for meaningful understanding is available and readily accessible at the museum and its website. From an educator’s point of view, it is truly remarkable to be able to tap into this exhibition and share with students the validity of human creativity and powerful way of expression through art. I would like to thank our instructor and assistant for an awesome teacher’s workshop. It was illuminating. thank you both.
