Ducklings, Swans, and the Suburbs

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
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
