There can't be much to see in Garland, right? Wrong. Apparently. For years, a Web site called “Garland Eyes” has been documenting the unknown beauty of Dallas suburb. Photographers for the site have turned their lenses on nature, architecture, and the “Garlandites,” defying the stereotype that the best thing about this city are the highways out of it. And if this wasn't already too much attention paid to the ugly duckling of suburbia, the Granville Arts Center (300 N. 5th St.) is hosting an art exhibition of the Garland Eyes imagery. The caveat? You'll have to go to Garland to see it. Talk about a Catch-22. See it on opening day from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. Wednesday or another day through October 19. Don't want to make the drive? The good news is that you can still visit garlandeyes.com.
Wed., Aug. 27, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Mondays-Fridays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: Aug. 27. Continues through Oct. 19, 2014

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
