Museums

FAIR PLAY A little town to the west of Dallas gets a lot of ink in the national press for its stellar museums—and rightfully so. But Big D has its share of institutions that deserve recognition too. And this month you'll discover there's a lot to look at. Begin at the Pan American Art Gallery, which houses one of the largest collections of Caribbean art in the United States. On September 5 the gallery opens "Landscapes of the Americas," which features oil paintings by artists from the U.S., the Caribbean, and Canada, including works by Cubans Jorge Arche and Juan Gil Garcia and Canadian Paul Hunter. On September 8 the Science Place opens "Target America: Traffickers, Terrorists and You," a traveling exhibit created by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. After examining artifacts from 9/11, including pieces of the Pentagon facade and twisted I beams from the World Trade Center towers, you'll learn that drugs and terrorism have a long history, dating back to Asia's Silk Road. Conclude your sight-seeing expedition at the Meadows Museum, where on September 14 you can catch the opening of "Spanish Master Drawings From Dutch Collections (1500-1900)," a selection of more than forty works, including drawings by Bartolomé Murillo, Jusepe de Ribera, and Alonso Cano. Spread the news. (See Dallas: Museums/Galleries )
