Catch these shows before they close
We know, we know. You had every intention of checking out Laura Wilson’s photography show before it ended. (So much to see, so little time!) Say no to cultural FOMO and check out three that are packing up soon:
Before April 13 Rossini’s 200-year-old The Barber of Seville is still an iconic comedic masterpiece. See the Dallas Opera’s terrifically cast and gorgeously designed production, and try not to belt out a few Fiiigaroooos. Can’t snag seats? Sign up to watch a free simulcast of the April 11 performance.
Before April 19 Head to SMU’s Meadows Museum for Sorolla & America, the first retrospective of the insanely beautiful work of Spanish painter Joaquin Sorolla. See more than 150 pieces from the Impressionist, from swoon-worthy Spanish landscapes to sketches of American cities (done, so coolly, on the backs of menus).
Before April 27 American artist Robert Smithson only realized one of his signature earthworks (massively scaled land art) in the Lone Star state, but he had much bigger plans. Head to the Dallas Museum of Art for Robert Smithson in Texas, an exhibit of renderings for five more works that never saw the light of Texas days.
