Next month, the Dallas Arts District is celebrating Art in October for the third year in a row. Stop by the Museum all month long for a plethora of unique artful activities for all ages (and species).

End the month with your canine companion during the Closing Celebration Sunday, October 30th.  Come in costume (pooches too!) and create art with your four-legged friend for Doggies in the District.

We hope you’ll stop by in October and discover fresh ways to connect with art!
