Marty Grosz Does the DMA

Flower of the Prairie: George Grosz in Dallas closed yesterday after three months on view. Earlier this month, George Grosz’s son musician Marty Grosz joined us for a special gallery talk with exhibition curator Dr. Heather MacDonald. Below are some images from his visit, and you can listen to the talk online. Even though the exhibition is closed, you can still take George Grosz home with you with our free e-catalogue.
