I'm going to use this opportunity to do two things: link to a New York Times story about the Dallas Museum of Art in order to give away 30 tickets to the Dallas Museum of Art. Good through June 30. Admits one; limit two per winner. Just post, oh, your favorite Ray Davies or Kinks song in the comments, and make sure you leave me and only me your name, so's I can leave 'em at the front. First come, first served.
Here, from The Times, a tease:
The Dallas Museum of Art has determined that visitors fall into one of four clusters, based on their preferred learning styles: observer, participant, independent or enthusiast. With information gathered from almost 3,000 visitors surveyed from 2003 to 2008, the director, Bonnie Pitman, and her staff keep these four groups at the heart of all exhibition design and programming.
And in honor of Davies' performing tonight at the Palladium (see you there?), here's one of my favorite Kinks songs as performed by the Morning Benders, courtesy Rollo & Grady and Daytrotter. Tickets for tonight's show are available at the door.
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.
