A kick up the arts in Dallas

All the single ladies, all the single ladies...

The Dallas Museum of Art is a seriously impressive collection of artwork from all cultures spanning 5,000 years.

Located in the Arts District in Downtown Dallas, there are over 24,000 works to view. Artists featured include Monet, CÚzanne, Gauguin, Matisse, Jackson Pollock, Franz Kline and Jasper Johns to name a few.

A quirkier part of the museum is Wendy and Emery Reves Collection which is a reproduction of the Reves house in France complete with furnished rooms displayed exactly as they were in 1927. The house was decorated, in part, by fashion designer, Coco Chanel. Paintings by Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec and van Gogh hang on the walls and are displayed next to rare Rodin sculptures. There is also a display of memorabilia and correspondence with their friend, UK Prime Minister, Winston Churchill.

Allow a minimum of 2-3 hours to leisurely view sections of the gallery.

Admission is free excluding special exhibits (approximately $12-$16).

Check out the website for more details including the feature which lets you search for art objects by colour.
