Chagall â€“ Beyond Color at the DMA
Itâ€™s midweek but thereâ€™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 Artâ€™s exhibit by Marc Chagall from 11amâ€“5pm. His costumes for the 1942 ballet production of Aleko are the exhibitâ€™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 â€“ 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 â€“ as clay. See the exhibit of 49 of Berniniâ€™s terracotta models in Fort Worth from 10amâ€“5pm on Wednesday. Special exhibit admission is $16 for adults and $12 for children ages 6â€“11.
Science Tales â€“ Busy Bees
Arguably, the beehive is another marvelous work of architecture. A real beekeeper will be teaching firstâ€“fifth graders about beekeeping from 2â€“3pm at Planoâ€™s Haggard Library. The kids can taste honey and make a bee-themed craft at the free program. Registration is required.
