Chagall – Beyond Color at the DMA
It’s midweek but there’s still plenty to do, including tour a few new exhibits minus the weekend crowds. See works of sculpture, ceramics and collage in the Dallas Museum of Art’s exhibit by Marc Chagall from 11am–5pm. His costumes for the 1942 ballet production of Aleko are the exhibit’s main attraction. Adult family members may enjoy the gallery talk and tour beginning at 12:15pm on Wednesday, and the kids can get busy with art projects in the Center for Creative Connections. Special exhibit admission is $16 for adults and free for ages 11 and younger. General admission is free for all.
Bernini – Sculpting in Clay at the Kimbell Art Museum
Marble fountains and sculpture and works of architecture by 17th-century sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini are all over Rome and Vatican City. Now you can see how the great works of Baroque sculpture began – as clay. See the exhibit of 49 of Bernini’s terracotta models in Fort Worth from 10am–5pm on Wednesday. Special exhibit admission is $16 for adults and $12 for children ages 6–11.
Science Tales – Busy Bees
Arguably, the beehive is another marvelous work of architecture. A real beekeeper will be teaching first–fifth graders about beekeeping from 2–3pm at Plano’s Haggard Library. The kids can taste honey and make a bee-themed craft at the free program. Registration is required.
