|dear sunset by Ugo Rondinone, a commissioned artwork by the Nasher XChange, which will be produced at Fish Trap Lake in West Dallas.|
We are literally blown away by the artistic wonders the Nasher XChange will produce in Dallas. One of our favorites is shown in the image above. Entitled "dear sunset", a wooden pier will be finished in vibrant colors reminiscent of a sunset in Fish Trap Lake in West Dallas. Artist Ugo Rondinone describes a romantically poetic approach to his work that evokes deep emotion for anyone in tune with Nature. Read all Rondinone's work and the other nine amazing artists working on the XChange in a brilliant interactive digital guide by the Nasher Sculpture Center. You will be amazed.
There are so many things to get you inspired this weekend. Here are our favorites:
Klyde Warren Park, Dallas' own central park uniting Uptown and Downtown over Woodall Rodgers, is celebrating it's first birthday. A weekend of festivities will commence, beginning this evening with a big screen simulcasting the Dallas Opera's Carmen. Free of charge.
TWOxTWO for Aids and Art will be held this weekend at the Rachofsky House in Dallas. The amazing gala and auction has raised over $40 million for the Dallas Museum of Art and amfAR. Check out their facebook page for a look at the art going up and the philanthropy invovled.
If you stay inside this weekend to prepare for your Halloween festivities, take time to nourish your mind and soul with an amazing documentary from HBO - Life According to Sam. Following the medical trials and tribulations of children with progeria, an aging-related disease, will give you hope by the wisdom and strength of young children bearing this illness. Sam, the namesake of the documentary, is a force. Be warned, there will be Niagara Falls, in a good way.
