The Modern Couple

If you can say you inspired F. Scott Fitzgerald, Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau and Coco Chanel (among others), simply because of the way you lived your life, then you deserve a touring museum exhibition dedicated to your legacy. If you can say, in even uncertain terms, that you are a fan of the modernist movement, modern art and style or just people that live year-round in luxurious but simple vacation towns, then do yourself a favor and pay a visit to the exhibit of muses: Making It New: The Art and Style of Sara and Gerald Murphy. The couple is legendary for their influence on Fitzgerald's Tender Is the Night, but there's so much more to learn about them. See for yourself at the Dallas Museum of Art through September 14. Admission is $5 to $10. The museum is closed on Mondays. Call 972-922-1200 or visit
