Henri Does Dallas
With pieces like the above from American sculptor Jonathan Borofsky, the Nasher Sculpture Center gets high marks from us for bending the outdated perception that Dallas ain't got no art.
Designed by Renzo Piano, and celebrating only its third year of operation this month, the indoor/outdoor gallery features a collection of hundreds of modern and contemporary sculptures by plenty of important artists, Miró, Picasso and Rodin among them.
Now that the museum has established itself in the city's art scene, it's collaborating with the Dallas Museum of Art, as well as the Baltimore Museum of Art, to host "Matisse: Painter as Sculptor." The exhibition, which opens January 21, has hundreds of works from the Frenchman organized thematically to highlight his creative process. If a trip to Texas isn't in your future, not to worry. When the show wraps in Dallas, it's headed to San Francisco and then Baltimore.
