The Perot's Museum's latest exhibit, The Science of Guinness Book of World Records has made its Dallas debut this month! Explore the science behind the world's most mesmerizing accomplishments through dozens of engaging and interactive exhibits.

Visit the Dallas Museum of Art's Cubism in Color: The Still Lifes of Juan Gris. The exhibit highlights the pioneering and revolutionary contributions to the Cubist movement by focusing on the artist's fascination with subjects drawn from everyday life.

Check out The Beauty of South Dallas, a virtual display of the South Dallas community through photography and video footage. It's the inaugural Juanita J Craft House Artist Residency project by Nitashia Johnson, and it documents the area in its current state and highlights the people that live and work in the community.
