Where to Find a Few Cultural Offerings

NICE CVB MAN SAYS: The Arts District in downtown Dallas, specifically the Nasher Sculpture Center.

WE SAY: That’s not a bad suggestion at all. We are fiercely proud of our burgeoning Arts District. The Dallas Symphony Orchestra will premiere a percussion work by Stewart Copeland, and the Nasher and Dallas Museum of Art are always excellent options. Don’t forget the Trammell and Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art. Unfortunately, the Winspear Opera House and Wyly Theatre are dark during the week before the game. Are you up for something a little more adventurous? Besides the Arts District, we’d suggest taking a trip to the Design District, where you’ll find a cluster of some of Dallas’ finest art galleries, including Marty Walker Gallery, Conduit Gallery, and Holly Johnson Gallery. Be sure to check out Plush Gallery (918 Dragon St., 214-915-0925). Randall Garrett’s gallery was a favorite from its auspicious beginnings as an alternative space in 2000 to its closing in 2007, and local art aficionados are happy to see it return in 2011. Since the Dallas Theater Center won’t have a production in the Wyly during Super Bowl week, we suggest taking in a play at one of Dallas’ consistently good independent theaters. Broken Gears Project Theatre (3819 Fairmount St., brokengearstheatre.com) will open the regional premiere of August Strindberg’s Creditors, directed by René Moreno, a fixture on the local scene.
