Five Favorite Images for Five Years

Art news is hard to tell without images. Over the past five years Dallas Art News has been invited to many press previews and events. Here are a few of our favorite images since 2009.

The more photographs you take, the more you learn. And that is certainly the case with a photograph of Peter Mayhew by Mr. Holga.

We had a private tour by Victoria Wyeth, great-granddaughter, granddaughter and niece of the Wyeths, at the Tyler Museum of Art. We could have listened to Ms. Wyeth all day.

Sculpture is beautiful and wonderful to photograph. But we only get photo ops during press previews. That’s why we never miss a chance to see art with the press.

The highlight of the Bush Center dedication was the few words by former president George Bush. Bush was in a wheelchair for the ceremony. He did not speak from the podium, but instead used a handheld microphone from his chair. During his ovation the aging president rose for the crowd with the aid of First Lady Barbara Bush and his son President George W. Bush.
