Just a few years ago, the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) celebrated its 100th anniversary, and for many of those years it has been one of the city's most beloved institutions. With over 23,000 works of art that span 5,000 years of history, the DMA is known for bringing impressive, internationally acclaimed exhibits to Dallas (between 8-10 special exhibitions a year). And not only does the DMA bring world-class art to this part of Texas, but it also offers over 2,000 activities and events every year for all ages. For example, locals love the DMA's summer Jazz Under the Stars concert series. Thursdays is also a prime night to hit the DMA for live music, interactive art projects, sketching in the museum, and drinks. Hours for Thursday Night Live are from 5-9 p.m. and admission is free.

If you are heading downtown during your stay, the DMA is a definite must-see. As a bonus, stop by Seventeen Seventeen for a bite. It's an excellent restaurant with a sophisticated atmosphere located on-site.

The image featured here is one of the newest additions to the DMA's collection. The painting, titled "For Whom the Bell Tolls," was inspired by a 1943 photograph of actress Ingrid Bergman. The artist, South African-native Marlene Dumas, is one of the most acclaimed figurative artists working today.
