As one of Texas’ largest (and trendiest!) cities, it’s no secret that Dallas is chock full of art and culture. Paintings, sculptures, theater, fashion, music – you name it, Dallas has it. And for residents of our Uptown Dallas apartments, much of it is just a quick walk, drive, or Uber ride away. No matter if you’re planning a romantic date night, an outing with friends, or just a day to yourself – there is always something going on in the neighborhood. So, what are you in the mood for?
Here is just a taste of the art, culture, and entertainment available to the residents of our apartments in Uptown Dallas.
Museum of Geometric and MADI Art
Do you love art and objects that are simple yet unique and abstract all at the same time? If you answered ‘yes,’ then a visit to the Museum of Geometric and MADI Art (aka Geometric MADI Museum) is a must. Located less than a 15-minute walk from our Uptown Dallas apartments, the museum features collections from artists that began the MADI art museum as well as contemporary artists. Every piece of art displayed is all about color-play, geometric forms, and love for pushing the boundaries.
In addition to permanent collections, the museum hosts four exhibits each year featuring MADI and geometric artists from all across the globe. The Geometric MADI Museum also boasts seminars, lectures, events, and workshops – keep an eye on their event calendar for details.
Dallas Museum of Art
As one of the 10 largest art museums in the country, the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) is quite an impressive establishment. Established in 1903, the museum boasts a grand 24,000 pieces of work that spans over 5,000 years of history. The best part? Admission is free every single day! However, special exhibits may require an admission cost (waived for members). The museum’s collection is dynamic and ever-changing with new acquisitions all the time – you’re sure to always see something new during each visit. Expect art pieces of all mediums from all across the world.
In addition to standard exhibits and galleries, the DMA also offers talks, tours, films, late nights, and ‘Second Thursdays with a Twist’. Visit their website for more information.
