The Nasher is truly a cornerstone of Dallas. The Nasher family has contributed so much to make this city what it is today. The Nasher Sculpture Center being one of them. I am so impressed with the collection they've acquired over the years -Calder, Picasso, Miro, and so on. But even more impressed with the touring exhibitions they are able to snag. The most recent being Martin Creed and Statuesque. Statuesque is an unbelievable survey of powerful sculptures that brilliantly makes cohesive sense with the Nasher's permanent collection. And Martin Creed's exhibition is wild and out there, but draws a wonderful crowd and engages our community. If you haven't checked it out yet, you must. It's a site specific roo...

Going to school in the Art's District should be a culturally rich experience and the Nasher does everything they can to make it that. Booker T. students get in for free and it's only $5 with another student I.D. Their exhibits rotate regul...

The Martin Creed exhibit showing through June 19, 2011 is INCREDIBLE.  You MUST GO SEE THIS!!!  The interactive room filled to the brim with inflated balloons is the most incredible experience my family has had at a museum in a looong time.  My almost-3 year old (I had to carry her - no one under 4 unless carried) LOVED it.  It pushes the boundaries of your sensations, makes you think and experience space, movement, sound in really new and fun ways.  Try pressing yourself against the wall, looking back into the room and see how the motion changes around you.  You don't need to force your way through the room (contrary to what your senses tell you), the balloons merely part in front of you.  SO COOL!!!  Also,...

If I had the perfect day in Dallas, Nasher would be part of it. A perfect size that keeps it from being overwhelming and a very calming place. The outdoor garden I really love and you forget you are in downtown with the sound of the fountains. The only irritating thing I experienced here was a photographer using the garden to take pic...

They really try hard to make this fun for the entire family. This place is good for well behaved children but large groups of kids may be...

Sometimes I take time from being an overgrown child and actually experience some of the culture that our fair city has to offer. When the weather is nice, the Nasher is typically the first place I'll head. The mix of indoor and outdoor exhibits are great and create a more open space to enjoy some really great pieces. The current exhibit is by Jaume Plensa, but some of the great exhibits they have shown in the past include works from installation artist George Segal, Picasso, Matisse's work as a sculptor and other amazing exhibits from the Nasher private collection. I'll echo what Diane C. said about how calm and quiet the sculpture garden is despite being a stone's throw from the highway in the heart of down...

When I went here this past summer when I visited the great city of Dallas me and some friends took a trip downtown to the Nasher Museum to listen to some live Salsa music.   Walking into to this beautiful building was amazing and the art was very exquisite and inviting. Go thru the atrium and out to the courtyard and it's like a blissful place right in the middle of downtown Dallas. We found seats immediately since they're were few to be had and ordered a couple glasses of wine to relax, although we were an hour early to the performance began it was a chance to take in the scenery and making ourselves comfortable. More people showed up and found spots on the lawn with there blankets and baskets of food. It g...

The Nasher as a whole is really neat.  I can't say much more than what has been said in the other reviews. Starting this month (May) Thursday nights are free through July.  From 5-10 there is a DJ in the gardens, yoga at 6pm, sketching at 7pm.  I went last night with my humanities class.  Ms. Nasher (daughter of Raymond and Patty) has become a friend to everyone in the class.  I recommend to anyone that when you visit to ask if Ms. Nasher is there, and introduce yourself to her.  She's a very approachable pleasant lady that knows everything about everything at The Nasher. Last night was the first time I've witnessed the sunset in the James Turrell's Skyspace "building".  I've been inside it during the day, a...

I wouldn't bother paying admission to see the art here -- you can see it (or art just like it) for free any time at Northpark, which was Ray Nasher's creation and is now run by his daughter.  If you still want to see this museum, go when it's free (first Saturday of each month, apparently), or at least get a combo ticket with the DMA (only $8 for students!). The art here is very modern, so be prepared -- there's no variety.  Some of it is interesting, but some of it is just weird.  However, do take the time to read the descriptions of each piece, and you'll appreciate it more.  For instance, there's a piece by Picasso called "Head of a Woman" that is one of only two in the world, and there's a lovely story a...
