Body Art

OK, let's take a poll here. Raise your hand if you've already broken (or haven't yet started) some body image-related New Year's resolution. It's cool, you don't have to tell me what it was...or won't ever be, for that matter. I have my own I'm not sharing...except to say it involves a helmet, because everything's more fun with a helmet. But I digress. While we're lamenting our own bodies, why not check out On the Body: Selected Work From the Rachofsky Collection over in the UNT Art Gallery, Tuesdays through Saturdays? The exhibition showcases works in a range of media that discuss the ol' bod. The focus is "works that have a decidedly psychological and personal dimension" but address social and scientific aspects of the body as well. On the Body opens Thursday and runs through February 21. Call 940-565-4005 or visit
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Jan. 15. Continues through Feb. 21, 2009
KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way.
