Much like live music venues, COVID-19 deeply impacted the Arts.
Personally, the Arts District is an enjoyable place to be. The block parties and late-night art events were on our calendar. But of course, those have been halted. Pop-up art exhibits have still shown up around Dallas, despite the closures of long-standing staples.
Luckily, Dallas museums, galleries, venues, and artists have gone virtual. Dallas Museum of Art added many videos to its YouTube and is offering virtual experiences. Theatres such as the Dallas Children’s Theatre are streaming the performances.
Others have opened with limited capacity and COVID guidelines or mix virtual with in-person options. Nasher Sculpture Center allows for reserved visit times as well as virtual field trips.
Here are some upcoming options to support the Arts in DFW:
Dallas Children’s Theatre has updated its site to include all of the virtual options, whether it’s plays, lunch and learns, or the social justice series.
The DMA’s Conservation and Arts of Africa departments partnered with UT Southwestern Medical Center to create a truly unique experience. Virtual Experience: Not Visible to the Naked Eye: Inside a Senufo Helmet Mask
Tomorrow, Denton’s Black Film Festival will begin virtually. They have several passes for options that include access to viewing content, workshops, to a performance by Tatiana “LadyMay” Mayfield.
If you miss attending Moody Hall or miss live orchestral, symphonic music, the Chamber Music International will stream live from Moody Hall. As a tribute to Stéphane Grappelli, jazz violinist Scott Tixier will be showcasing Grappelli’s work.
You’ve probably seen the Dreamer of Houses at the DMA on Insta. But you don’t have to worry about FOMO since there is a virtual option.
Several ongoing exhibits and shows can be seen virually or through social distanced, reserved experience.
Be sure to check the calendar as we will be adding virtual events there as well. What’s your favorite virtual event so far? We want to know!
