Dallas Museum of Art is a beautiful building with a huge, varied collection. My favorites were from the “American Art” gallery. The “Untitled” statue of a man was probably 15 feet tall – truly a statue that could not be ignored due to its sheer size. Sometimes, the story behind the paintings, made me love the it even more. Such as “The Prodigal Son” painting depicts a headstrong son who goes out in the world, then returns home broken and battered. Yet his father welcomed him home even though the homestead has fallen in disrepair without the son home to help. Truly a valuable lesson in the limitless possibilities of forgiveness. In the painting,” June Night” the painting depicts the chaos of postwar America and the artist sought to memorialize his family who were victims of the holocaust. This museum was a wonderful way to wrap up my visit to Dallas. Thanks for reading! Hope you enjoyed!

“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
