Few cities have more art or better art than we now have in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex. From the second largest contemporary art museum in the U.S. to the world class Nasher Sculpture Center - there is lots going on!

The Dallas / Fort Worth area (called the Metroplex) also has anactive group of working artists, art centers, and many great privategalleries. In addition to our six major art museums, we have severalsmaller art museums that are very special. This non-commercial web sitelists them all with links and a few comments.

We also feature the art museums in Texas and the Southwest. Texas is truly State of the Arts! And Oklahoma is OK too!

We have some great art in Big D and Cowtown! Y'all come and see it!

Dallas / Fort Worth and Texas Art News

The Piano Pavilion at the Kimbell is now open. It will house the permanent collection. The Samurai: Armor from the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Collection also hangs in the new building thru August.

Future exhibits

Faces of Impressionism - Portraits from the Musée d’Orsay - At the Kimbell in Fort Worth. It hangs from October 19, 2014 to January 25, 2015.

Navigating the West: George Caleb Bingham and the River at the Amon Carter. It hangs October 18 to January 18, 2015. It was organized with the Saint Louis Art Museum, which has a lot of works by the Missouri artist. It should be an interesting show, and I've always been a fan.
