This past week I got to preview The Body Beautiful in Ancient Greece: Masterworks from the British Museum currently on view at the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA).

Closing this Sunday, April 21, 2013, is a delightful exhibition of large photographs at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. The exhibition is called Big Pictures and the title means what it says.

Though the Deep Ellum Arts Festival has a long history, this year’s event was my first experience. As a lover of art and festivals, I’ve been to many art festivals, but none as exciting as this one.
