‘Til Midnight in the Arts District

The Dallas Arts District is a conglomerate of several incredible museums: the legendary Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center, Winspear Opera House, Meyerson Symphony Center, and many others. Each venue contributes its own distinct experience to Dallas, and many of these exquisite institutions are continually making themselves more accessible to the public.

If you have never toured around the District, I highly recommend it; after visiting the DMA (for free), you can walk across the street to Klyde Warren Park and visit the food trucks for the afternoon. You could also walk on the reflective pool outside while peering through the glowing red glass of the Winspear Opera House. The Arts District is a large area of Dallas, and you have plenty to explore and see!




These gorgeous sites want to give the public ample opportunity to experience everything that the Arts District has to offer; every third Friday of the month, the DMA hosts “Late Night” when the museum is open until midnight and hosts a range of activities for all age groups. Outside of the museum, there are numerous food trucks and live music. There is also the occasional performance or film showing. This Friday, the DMA is serving cocktails and there is also Late Night Karaoke and Yoga for Kids!



Many institutions in the Arts District participate in this evening affair; the Nasher Sculpture Center also hosts a “Late Night” of their own, called “‘Til Midnight at the Nasher” that primarily takes place outdoors, usually accompanied by live music. The Nasher also keeps its doors open until midnight this Friday. After having a late dinner from one of the many food trucks, you can crawl through the Sculpture Center’s various interactive exhibits.

See Dallas’ beautiful Arts District and all it has to offer after dark this Friday, August 21st!
