Free Is Beautiful

The free family festivities offered by some of our vaunted cultural institutions in Dallas are a godsend: a total lifesaver for parents overwhelmed with Montessori tuition, crew lesson installments and gym dues. I mean, people told us that kids were expensive, but who knew that each activity came with such a price tag? It’s not polite to complain about money, but if you get a chance to entertain and enlighten your progeny for a whole day at no cost, I’ll tell you to take it. And the Target First Saturday at the Nasher Sculpture Center (2001 Flora St.) is one of the best opportunities in the city to take advantage of a beautiful cultural experience at no cost. First of all, it’s one of your last chances to experience Ernesto Neto’s stunning Cuddle on the Tightrope installation. Second, there are tons of hands-on activities, starting at 10 a.m. and running the entire day. Start out at a sculpture demo, then move on to the art-themed scavenger hunt, the family tours, yoga and story time with the Dallas Public Library. Check for specific event times.

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. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
