Right in the impressive Dallas Arts District, the Nasher Sculpture Center features a personal collection of modern sculpture. The collection is displayed well in an attractive atrium atmosphere.

Here one can sit outside... More

This was a day well-spent. I had an afternoon off (which is rare) and took a friend's advice to go. I am glad that I did. I felt like I could stay all day.

We attended a wedding reception at the Center. It was easily the classiest venue we've ever experienced. The collection is not large, but world class: every piece is a gem.

We attended with a fines arts group visiting the area art museums and private collections. This is a terrific collection in their permanent works and worth seeing on its own.but we were particularly impressed by the temporary show of architecture. The way it was presented and the innovative design elements justify why architecture is sculpture. Terrific. If you are in... More
