SMU Tate Lecture Series – Christopher Buckley, Author and Political Satirist

SMU Tate Lecture Series - Christopher Buckley, Author and  Political Satirist

The SMU Tate Lecture series is one of my favorite things to look forward to in Dallas. They have done an extremely amazing job at hosting some of the finest intellectuals, musicians, politicians, activists, and journalists from around the world. The series not only assists in offering Dallas residents the opportunity to listen to some of the greatest influential leaders of our time, but it also gives SMU recognition as being forefronts of continuing education. The series started in 1983 and today is"one of the country's leading forums for intellectual inquiry and discussion." I couldn't agree more.

Dallas Museum of Art is Free All Weekend

Dallas Museum of Art is Free All Weekend

Celebrate the final weekend of Summer Spotlight, Willie Doherty & Private Universes and the premiere of All the World’s a Stage with free admission and special programs and tours. The DMA is free all weekend. Take advantage of the tours, lectures and films, as well as access to three exhibits. Although, I expect a lot of people will be doing the same.

Among the exhibit of All the World's a Stage will be a group of pastel ballet dancers by Edgar Degas. Growing up in pink tights and a black leotard I became very familiar with Degas' ballet dancers. Years of plies and arabesques at the bar, and staring at the Degas posters that lined the wall in cheap frames from Michael's- I got to know them well.
