Some families camp together; others play sports. Our family indulges in the arts: museums, film, cuisine, fashion, music and photography; my little brother Ricky and I were immersed in all avenues of creativity. Part of that exposure was frequent trips to the many art museums here in Dallas-Fort Worth. One of my favorites, particularly because of the Late Night events, is the Dallas Museum of Art.
Yesterday, my brother, his girlfriend, and their baby girl headed to downtown Dallas to enjoy the museum. Our favorite style is contemporary which was our first stop in the museum. Which, by the way, my brother had a brief stint as a painter when he took advanced art in high school; he won awards and even sold a painting in a school art auction.
If you’ve ever thought about bringing an 11-month-old to a museum, I highly recommend it! My niece was engaged with her surrounding, even babbling to various works of art. Her squeals of delight even made of the docents smile. For the last 30 minutes of our trip, she took a peaceful nap.
All in all, I had a great time! We spent a couple of hours strolling through all of the collections. I gravitated toward sculptures, modern art, and furniture. Oh, and I saw THE coolest panda chair as part of the contemporary furniture. By far, the most unexpected piece in the Dallas Museum of Art.
P.S. My brother is a huge supporter of this blog and has often asked me to include men’s style. Instead of changing the focus of my blog, I hope this family post will suffice instead!
