( An Out Of Gallery Art ) Experience

  jrc photo

Any time you can get public art without the bureaucrat's thumbs stuck up its... uh... hindside, you're likely to get a quality artistic project. Join us as we tour the heart of Dallas' wall painting in Deepest Deep Elm 2002. And of course, when this rag first went online I did a bit of exploring in that same territory.

One of Sherry Owens' classy Art of Fashion windows at the downtown Dallas Neiman Marcus store last month jrc photo

n a spectacular presentation
along three streets in Dallas' nearly comatose Central Business District, Dallas artist Sherry Owens' late February Art of Fashion installation in the downtown Neiman-Marcus department store was a remarkable marriage of art and commerce. Visit the show in nearly its entirety — big pictures and lots of explanations — in our coverage of Sherry's public display of art.



Our 3rd Aooga! Experience is from long-time reader Michael Cross, who has installed some of his paintings in Texas Women's University's campus-wide, site-specific exhibition Wide Awake 2000, which allowed artists to propose their own site. Michael's work, which was installed last Friday in the Greenhouse, can be viewed on his webiste by clicking on the TWU Exhibit button. The campus showing may be extended another week.

Liz Ferguson's Impression of an  Artist's Painting looks a lot like old Pablo's less delicate vision. jrc photo

Liz Ferguson's Impression of an Artist's Painting oil on canvas was discovered at the recent Saint Mark's School annual auction. JR likes it, because it turns misogynist Pablo's famous portrait into a distinctly softer, gentler, feminie piece. Uh-oh, it must be another Aooga! experience.


Hung Rocks at Conemara was probably our first outide of gallery art experience.

Let's not forget Frances Bagley and husband Tom Orr's colllaborative, site-specific, floating sculpture, The White Rock Lake Water Theater

Hall Office Park in Frisco, Texas has an abundance of Public Art out in the redeveloped boonies.

There's a whole DARts Subindex devoted to Public Art, much of which involve gallery-less art

And a Tours subindex that includes Oak Cliff's Drive By, illustrated above, and other art tours around town.
