The Dallas Museum of Art will present the exhibition Cindy Sherman from March 17–June 9, 2013. The retrospective, a touring exhibit organized by New York's Museum of Modern Art, will trace the influential photographer's career from the mid-1970s to the present. Known for posing as her own model, Sherman's series of photographs range from "clowns" to "society portraits." Selections shown at the Dallas Museum of Art include photographs from some of Sherman's major series, so expect to see the contemporary photographer in many fascinating disguises.
For a hands-on experience that the entire family can enjoy this summer, visit the Recycle Reef exhibit at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. Each visitor plays a part in helping the exhibit grow and change every day. Recyclable materials are sourced within the “making area” to design an eco-friendly work of art. Keeping with the reef theme, the materials can be used to create fish, sea plants, manta rays and more. Guests can opt to take their artwork home or add it to the Recycle Reef’s collection of masterpieces. The exhibit runs through August 25, and once it closes, the entire exhibit will be recycled to honor the green initiative. Children of all ages will enjoy the Perot Museum, the newest kid on the block in the Dallas arts scene. Filled with a number of installations that encourage visitors to touch, learn and engage the museum is just one fun way to beat the Texas heat.
