WHERE YOU SHOULD GO SOMETIME THIS WEEKEND

I suppose you could go next week, too. Or the week after that. Point is, at sometime between now and November 13, you should go to SMU’s Meadows Museum of Fine Art. This year, as you probably know, is the 400th anniversary of the publication of Miguel de Cervantes’ Don Quijote. I read (most of) Don Quijote in high school and am a big fan. You know who else was a big fan? King Philip V. In 1722, he commissioned dozens of tapestries to illustrate key scenes in the book for the Royal Court of Spain. The Meadows Museum has an exhibit with 15 of the 44 tapestries, beautiful works of the errant knight encountering the galley slaves, tilting toward windmills, and all that good stuff. Check it out.
