Dallas Museum Of Art Uncrated
We had a wild Late Night this past Friday, March 16, celebrating Maurice Sendaks classic childrens book and the Dallas Arts Districts Spring Block Party. Visitors transformed themselves into wild things in the Art Studio, took in a circus performance by Lone Star Circus in the Atrium, listened to author Laura Numeroff discuss her Jellybeans series, met animals from the Dallas Zoo, experienced many of Dallass food trucks on Harwood Street, and raced through the Museum to win the DMAzing Race. We even had our own Wild Thing roaming the Museums Concourse. What was your favorite wild event?
Have a roaring good time as we travel back to the 1920s, complete with our own Speakeasy, during Aprils Late Night on Friday, April 20.

Late Night Fridays At The Dma
Of course, we all know the museums are a great source of beautiful art, but did you know that on Friday nights, the DMA is open until midnight? Live music, food, drinks, dancing, and crafts, in addition to the exhibits. I recently attended the ’20’s night. There were more people there in costume in their ’20’s, then the people you would think, it was refreshing to see young people taking an interest in the era.
This Downtown Dallas Museum houses fabulous art that won’t dissapoint even the most astute art lover.
I took my daughter and niece to the DMA while on a trip to Dallas recently as neither had been to a real museum and we loved it! There is a huge collection of art from all over the world, plenty of exhibits to keep you busy looking for hours. Additionally, it’s free admission, which makes it even better. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time when visiting so you can thoroughly enjoy this impressive museum.
I last visited this museum in January, 2015. I returned to find it as wonderful as it was the first time. They had a great special exhibit, which was different from the last one. The museum is free, but the special exhibits are well worth the few bucks. I went early on a Saturday, following a visit to the Nasher Sculpture Museum which is very nearby. The crowds started to pick up as I left, but everyone was very respectful. The Nasher/DMA combo cannot be beat.

Late Nights At The Dallas Museum Of Art Are Outstanding
I live in Dallas, and always enjoy Late Nights at the Dallas Museum of Art. Since so many folks live downtown, and are always looking for a late-night get-away, this experience is well worth the visit. Most DMA late-nights have a theme, and include a good band playing inside – usually jazz, swing, or something unusual. The museum provides unique short tours during the evening, when the tour guides provide some amazing history and access to the permanent collection in ways most folks miss. A light meal and beverages can be had, and there is a kids area that gives everyone the chance to participate hands-on with the arts. Don’t miss this!On some late-nights,the Nasher Museum, and Trammel Crow Asian Art museums are also open, and so it is quite a treat to take the museum stroll.NOTE: Museum parking underground fills up quickly, but parking on the meters is free nearby, after 6pm. about $8-$10. in the nearby office parking lots. You may need to walk a few blocks.If you live in Dallas, please consider membership, and volunteering.

Dallas Museum Of Art Late Nights
The third Friday of every month, the Dallas Museum of Art hosts a late night. It is truly a family night with music, tours of the museum, special exhibitions, movies, lectures, arts and crafts for the kids.
Last Friday I heard the Grammy Award winning band, Brave Combo, a lecture with New York Times bestselling author, Michael Ennis, and a new to me singer-songwriter, Sahara Smith. Her latest album, Myth of the Heart, was produced by T-Bone Burnett. Whew! What more could I ask for? All my creative needs met in one night and one location.
The next late night is Friday 15th of February 2013, and features a exhibition of works by artist, Chagall. After hours music by Hunter Hendrickson.
The museum is open until midnight on late nights.

I Love The Starbucks Late Nights
Definitely smart entertainment! The Dallas Museum of Art is open till midnight on the third Friday of each month. The entire event is always carefully organized well done with talented musical entertainment, engaging lectures and activities, and events for all ages. This is an awesome event to attend with a group of friends or for a date night. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and always working to meet the needs of their patrons. Every time I go I tell myself ” I need to do this every month”! Attend a DMA Late Night and you wont be disappointed!
The Dallas Museum of Art is definitely worth a visit when you come to Dallas. Make a great day of it and also visit the Crow Collection and the Nasher Sculpture Center, which are located very close to the DMA. The Dallas Museum of Art is quite kid friendly. They hav several activities for children on the weekends and also have a special area where the kids can create their own art.
Late Night Summer Party
The museum is structurally magnificent to start, large open spaces, and a floor plan that allows for easy flow from exhibit to exhibit. We went, this trip, during a summer party that hosted superhero themed docents and games for teenagers to expose them to art. Travelling with teenage students, our “kids” loved the scavenger hunt and we spent four hours at the museum looking at art and enjoying the summer evening.
It is a very large museum nicely kept. I felt safe as a female exploring the area alone because of the security that was noticeable. The openness of the first floor made some of the statues larger than life, very enjoyable … oh and budget friendly
the museum is well laid out, comfortable and FREE. For a museum which has excellent examples of Monet, Picasso, and other top notch artists that is very rare indeed. For people who are not big museum goers, but would like to spend a couple of hours a in a cool air conditioned venue and see something interesting without being mobbed by crowds, this is an excellent place to go. they also have a children art participation space.

Late Night At The Dallas Museum Of Art
I remember when the Dallas Museum of Art was constructed I was working in the now long-imploded Cotton Exchange building right next door. In those salad days, the museum was free and almost empty. I would go over at lunch, eat from a sack and look at my favorite sculpture Rhythm in Space in the garden and then stroll past the Stake Hitch to see what was up.
That was a long time ago.
A few days back, looking ahead, I found information on the festivities in the Dallas Arts District on Friday Night. This was their Late Nights at The Museum where the place would be open until Midnight with all sort of activities scheduled. It was also the birthday of the museum and also, outside, the Crow Musuem of Asian Art would be celebrating Chinese New Year.
My intention was to leave from work and get down there at about six. I was exhausted, however, and went home for a quick power nap and a bite to eat before I caught the train downtown.
I was glad that I had wolfed down that sandwich sure enough, there were eight trucks in a double line along Flora Street, but they were engulfed in a massive crowd. The lines to get some vittles stretched out hundreds of yards.
The crowds mobbing the eight food trucks along Flora Street in the Arts District.
I have been to the museum hundreds of times, so I knew of a hidden little slit window up on the top floor that looked down onto the festivities. I walked up there and watched for a while.
