Celebrate dad starting Friday, June 18 with a night of family events at the Dallas Museum of Art’s Late Night traveling to the coast in honor of the current exhibition Coastlines: Images of Land and Sea. Enjoy time with dad with family fun activities in the Center for Creative Connections. Treat dad to tales of rural West Texas by Jake Silverstein, editor of Texas Monthly, from his first book, Nothing Happened and Then It Did: A Chronicle in Fact and Fiction. Watch Back to the Beach with Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon, icons of the 1960s beach party films. Dive into the summer exhibition Coastlines: Images of Land and Sea.
At 9:00 p.m. enjoy a free outdoor concert featuring Guitar Legend Dick Dale and his son Jimmy Dale. Dick Dale, King of the Surf Guitar, invented surf music in the 1950s, was the first rock guitarist to perform on The Ed Sullivan Show, and was nominated for a Grammy Award with Stevie Ray Vaughan for music in the motion picture Back to the Beach. His music has also been featured in Pulp Fiction and Escape from L.A. The concert celebrating Coastlines: Images of Land and Sea begins at 9:00 p.m. on the Ross Avenue Plaza.
This summer, now through Labor Day, active military personnel and their families can experience the museum for free as part of the national Blue Star Museums program organized by the National Endowment for the Arts in collaboration with Blue Star Families.
