Artful DIY April Fool’s Day

In honor of April Fool’s Day, here is a high-brow idea for pranking the art-lover in your life.

Tape a toy crustacean to a co-worker’s office phone to imitate Salvador Dali’s Lobster Telephone. It’s guaranteed to be a surreally good joke!

DMA of Thrones

The long-awaited season 4 premiere of the hit HBO drama Game of Thrones is upon us! This Sunday, April 6, we’ll return to George R. R. Martin’s epic world where the Lannisters, Starks, Targarians and Baratheons continue to battle for control of Westeros amidst all the betrayals and plot twists that keep everyone guessing.

And the DMA has some exciting news: If you’ll be tuning in, be sure to keep an eye out for the candelabrum, pictured below. This piece was loaned to the series as a prop for the Royal Wedding at King’s Landing!

Candelabrum (one of a pair), Frederick Elkington & Co. designed 1872, Dallas Museum of Art, gift of Paul Zane Pilzer, Jeffery S. Juster, Mrs. John O'Boyle and Mrs. Barron U. Kidd in honor of Alan M. May

April Fool’s!

Friday Photos: April Fool's Day!

We decided to have a little fun on April Fool’s Day, so a few of us took a field trip over to the Nasher Sculpture Center’s new  exhibition, Sightings: Martin Creed.  Getting lost in the balloons was fun and scary at the same time.  Can you find the Museum educators?
