Dallas, TX – December 15, 2022 – The new year is right around the corner, kicking off a fresh suite of programs to inspire and excite art lovers of all ages! The Dallas Museum of Art invites visitors to step through its doors to embark on new journeys and discover their own creativity with themed after-hours festivities, stimulating author conversations and art that you can literally take with you.
“The beginning of a new year is a chance to unlock new opportunities and create new memories,” says Stacey Lizotte, The Allen and Kelli Questrom Center for Creative Connections Director of Education.
“We’re thrilled to be a venue of self-discovery for the DFW community, and we look forward to hosting inspiring conversations and memorable art encounters throughout 2023.”
The renowned lecture series Arts & Letters Live returns for its 32nd season in 2023. Arts & Letters Live has hosted some of the biggest names in arts and literature, and this year is no exception. Pulitzer Prize winner Jerry Saltz kicks off the season with a discussion of his newest read, Art Is Life: Icons and Iconoclasts, Visionaries and Vigilantes, and Flashes of Hope in the Night. Saltz is joined by an impressive roster of award-winning authors and performers, including satirist David Sedaris, historical fiction maven Fiona Davis, Pulitzer Prize winner Geraldine Brooks and V. E. Schwab, the New York Times bestselling author of the genre-defying novel The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue.
Pop of Art and Late Nights are back with unique weekend escapes for Dallas’ night owls. Hosted on selected Friday evenings, Pop of Art provides visitors with a new perspective on the DMA’s collection through a unique pop culture lens, exploring connections between fine art and everything from cult classic TV series Twin Peaks to Latin trap artist Bad Bunny. Late Nights at the DMA are the perfect date night for Dallasites! These events keep the Museum open for special extended hours, featuring special performances, tours, art-making activities and more.
Families with children young or old and educators looking to broaden their students’ horizons can expect to see a wide variety of programs that engender a passion for art and learning in young people. Regular art-making explorations offer a welcoming environment for youth to explore their inner artist.
Families can also rest, recharge and restart with a full week of art activities this Spring Break, March 14 through 17.
