• Ride the DART Rail Red Line, Blue Line, Green Line or Orange Line to Pearl/Arts District Station or St. Paul Station for the final weekend of Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots. This exhibit is only the third major U.S. museum exhibition to focus solely on the artist hailed as “the greatest painter this country has ever produced.” The Dallas Museum of Art will present what experts have deemed a “once in a lifetime” exhibition, organized by the DMA’s Hoffman Family Senior Curator of Contemporary Art Gavin Delahunty: the largest survey of Jackson Pollock’s black paintings ever assembled. This exceptional presentation, which critics hailed as “sensational,” “exhilarating,” “genius,” “revelatory,” and “revolutionary” on its UK premier at Tate Liverpool, will receive its sole US presentation in Dallas and include many works that have not been exhibited for more than 50 years. Note: Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots will require a $16.00 special exhibition ticket. The DMA is located at 1717 N. Harwood. Information: www.dma.org.
