The Nasher Sculpture Center opened in October 2003 and was on my wish list of places to visit while in the Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas area. It was the first institution in the world dedicated to modern and contemporary sculpture with a collection of significant work to the genre of sculpture. Filling an entire block in downtown Dallas, in the heart of Dallas’ growing Arts District, The Center features approximately 25 large-scale sculptures from Nasher Collection on view in the Garden at one time.

Erin Hylton “NAEA 2013” 2013

In the beginning of March I attended the 2013 National Art Education Association Convention in Fort Worth, Texas. It was full of inspiration and lessons to carry into the rest of the calender year. With the theme of “Drawing Community Connections”, art educators could choose from hands on workshops, research lectures, inspirational sessions, award ceremonies, exhibitor hall, live demonstrations, and a plethora of other choices.

Erin Hylton. “Public Art in Bishop Arts District” 2013

Full of great art and food choices I really enjoyed the Bishop Arts District on my trip to Texas. It is a unique compilation of boutiques, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, theatres and art galleries in the North Oak Cliff section of Dallas, Texas. For lovers of art and culture, it is a must visit while in the Dallas area.
