Whenever I see the words dead and society in the same title or sentence, I usually assume it's along the lines of or referring to the movie Dead Poets Society. You know, the uber-depressing movie about a group of Vermont schoolboys. In this case, the Dead Photographer's Society has nothing to do with teenage boys rebelling against their parents and headmaster. It's a month-long art exhibit showcasing a collection of black and white photographs by Dallas and Fort Worth artists that include landscape, portraiture and other subject matter for our viewing pleasure. Unfortunately, this show is sans Ethan Hawke. The Dead Photographer's Society exhibition will be at the Ice House Cultural Center (1004 W. Page Ave.) until June 12, and the event is free and open to the public. For more information and gallery hours, visit dallasculture.org.
Tuesdays-Fridays, 12-6 p.m.; Saturdays, 1-6 p.m. Starts: May 19. Continues through June 12, 2009
