The twins went out of town with my Mom, so my hubby and I decided to take the toddler and spend a day as tourists in the Dallas Arts District.
We started at the Crow Collection of Asian Art, which we had never been to before. It’s a small museum, but I was impressed with what they have. The museum is free to visit, but they do happily accept donations. There was a photography exhibit and a jade exhibit that I enjoyed. And one of the things in the museum that really caught my eye wasn’t an exhibit at all. It was these paper cranes, hundreds of them, hanging from the ceiling on one of the walkways.
The toddler and I donned the white paper booties that you are required to wear and made our way through the exhibit. The whole exhibit kind of sways while you walk so it’s best to hold on
I also really enjoyed walking around outside. The landscaping and fountains are pretty.
I also really liked the sculptures that were outside. I thought this one of a fork was fun. (Getting the toddler to pose was a challenge. He doesn’t like to hold still.)
There were also some jewelry pieces that were beautiful. (You can read the press release about the exhibit here.)
We had a great day and it was fun to explore some new museums.
