Flower of the Prairie at the DMA–and West Dallas

On exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art from May 20 to August 19 is Flower of Prairie: George Grosz in Dallas, an exhibit commemorating Grosz’s impressions of Dallas in the 1950s.

In conjunction with the exhibit, the DMA will be showing Dallas-related films. One of those, Bonnie and Clyde, will be shown on Thursday, July 12. Because of the couple’s strong association with West Dallas, the DMA has asked me to give an introductory talk on the history of West Dallas and its relationship with the rest of the city. I’m looking forward to it.
