The Dallas Museum of Art. Special exhibition: Divine Felines: Cats of Ancient Egypt:
General admission to the DMA is free BUT $16 to see the special exhibitions. $14 for seniors 65+.
The free general admission includes viewing the Museum’s permanent collection galleries and most exhibitions. So you can enter for free and spend the day but you won't see the Divine Felines exhibit.
The Devine Felines exhibition is a special exhibition so you have to pay $16 to see it.
Divine Felines program guide:
LUNCH: There is no scheduled lunch, the members will decide when to break for lunch.
Lunch options: The DMA has a great cafeteria, usually we eat there, or if it's a nice day we might head outdoors... there are plenty of food trucks at the Clyde Warren Park just outside the museum.
DMA cafeteria menu:
PARKING: There is an underground parking lot at the DMA $12 flat fee for the whole day (Parking FREE for DMA Members and Nasher Sculpture Center members). More parking is available in the area including parking meters. Give yourself some extra time to find a parking spot.
DART: Ride the DART train to the St. Paul Station and walk north to the Museum's Ross Avenue entrance.
SKETCHING AT THE DMA: Sketchbooks and pencils (no other art supplies) are permitted in the galleries.
SCHOOL GROUPS: The Museum opens at 11 so we might encounter school groups entering or viewing the special exhibition. In that case we can go to the cafeteria first and have lunch while we wait for the crowds to move on.
About us: Artists Out and About is a small group of mature artists who meet during the day on the first Wednesday of every month (not holidays) in a different location each time in the Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) area... or a bit further away if we find a great location. We like to have lunch together and the pace is relaxed. Bring your sketchbook and work independently, there is no instruction and no formal schedule. Join us, and fill up a page or two in your sketch book, be imaginative or creative... or just draw from observation. All levels welcome, come if you enjoy doodling, or if you are a hobby artist, an amateur artist or a professional artist. All are welcome. Bring your sketchbook.
Please note: There are no 'Meetup' signs, labels or reservations, most of the regular members have met each other so if you are a newcomer, look for a bunch of friendly sketchers and please walk up, join and introduce yourself. Look for sketchbooks, that's how we find each other.
There is no fee to join this Meetup group.
Please take care of your own expenses such as parking, entry fees and meals.
