Nasher Sculpture Center


Dallas Arts District
2001 Flora St.
Dallas, Texas 75201
214-242-5100

A serene urban retreat which is home to the renowned Raymond and Patsy Nasher Collection of modern and contemporary sculpture, the Nasher Sculpture Center is devoted to the exhibition and preservation of modern sculpture.


We admit - rather sheepishly - that we were surprised the first time we went to the Nasher. We are a little picky - all right, quite picky - about art. We want to see something that's relevant, creative, interesting, and thought-provoking or inspiring. And the Nasher provided just that.


We were pleased to find not only works from recent artists, but also pieces from Picasso, Matisse, Rodin, and Gauguin. And being outside in the retreat of the Nasher's beautiful sculpture garden made us want to don a 19th century Pride and Prejudice dress or a top hat and tails for a leisurely stroll along the marble stone walls under the elm and oak trees ... that or just throw off our shoes and take off running across the grass.


We recommend stopping by the Nasher when you're in a peaceful, unrushed, melancholy mood and you have time to stroll about. Take time to read the descriptions of each piece in order to appreciate, understand, and enjoy it more fully. You can learn a little about Raymond and Patsy Nasher and even see photos of their home (back when some of the pieces were housed there).


The museum is open every day except Monday (and a few holidays), and admission includes a free audio tour and entrance to special exhibitions. Note that photography is allowed in some galleries - just ask the docents which ones.

UPCOMING EVENTS

Target Free Saturdays


First Saturday of each month at 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Nasher Sculpture Center
Dallas Arts District
1717 North Harwood
Dallas, Texas 75201
214-922-1200

FREE

Admission to the museum is free from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM on the first Saturday of each month during Target Free Saturdays. You might want to get there early though so you can park at a meter on the street instead of paying the higher parking lot or garage fees. It's just a few bucks for two hours of metered street parking, and that should give you plenty of time to see the exhibits or participate in any of the museum's scheduled family programming. Also, an early arrival gets you in while some of the kiddos are still at home watching cartoons.
