The Dallas Museum of Art hosts a variety of events throughout the year including Second Thursdays with a Twist.
On February 8th, guests can wear their blue suede shoes as the theme is Heartbreak Hotel.
It takes place from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., and offers a unique look at the museum's collection with a pop culture twist.
The fun includes a tribute artist, games, and watching Viva Las Vegas in the Horchow Auditorium. Visitors can also paint on velvet to create their own kitschy masterpiece of fabric art.
Tickets are just five dollars, and admission includes access to exhibits such as:
Paris at the Turn of the Century (on display through May 27)
Paris at the Turn of the Century celebrates the city's beauty and dynamism. It features works on paper that depict everyday life from the late 1800s to the early 1900s, and artists include Jacques Villon, Felix Hilaire Buhot, and Jean Louis Forain.
Hopi Visions: Journey of the Human Spirit (on display through December 2)
The Journey of the Human Spirit exhibition features a mural painted by Hopi painters Delbridge Honanie and Michael Kabotie. This is the first time it is on display outside of Arizona, and it tells the story of the Hopi people. The artists took inspiration from figural wall paintings that were created before European contact.
Asian Textiles: Art and Trade Along the Silk Road (on display through December 9)
Step into the Asian Textiles exhibit to see some of the finest examples of garments and ornamental hangings. The pieces come from countries such as China, India, and Japan, and include a dragon robe, sari, and fireman's coat.
