Raising Museum Lovers

Really looking forward to our next visit to the Dallas Museum of Art — the ‘México 1900–1950: Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, José Clemente Orozco, and the Avant-Garde‘ exhibit opens March 12.

The boys are going to be even happier, because Dallas has their favorite area for kids to do their own thing — the Center for Creative Connections — and I’m so happy to see that our regular museum visits, beginning when they were babies, have (so far) completely worked out, because they think nothing of going and always look forward to it. And I love it, because their heads are getting filled with big ideas and they realize how different and wonderful the world is. Aaaaahhhhh.

Last time, they asked us to go to the Dallas Museum two days in a row (and we did) — they spent *hours* making things

Meanwhile, Av reads with them and I get to see every single thing on display

Also opening this spring: The Keir Collection of Islamic Art Gallery, beginning April 18. It’s the ‘largest public presentation in the history of one of the world’s most important private collections of Islamic Art.’ and for only three months beginning May 21, ‘Iris van Herpen: Transforming Fashion‘ will be on display.
