Under the Moonlight
Fun-loving Dallasites unwind 'til midnight at Nasher Sculpture Center
Temperatures are rising and the days are getting longer, which means one thing for the Dallas Arts District: the 'Til Midnight at the Nasher music and concert series is back.
Despite the humidity, hundreds of people packed into the Nasher Sculpture Center garden for the series kickoff featuring the sounds of Air Review and the family-friendly filmLife of Pi.
The band repeatedly admitted the audience was their quietest yet, but we blame the fully stocked picnic baskets — wine, cheese, crackers, salads and chocolate-covered strawberries — for keeping mouths full.
Attendees of all ages rested comfortably among Nathan Mabry's bronze sculptures — the latest installation in the museum's "Sightings" series — while others cut up in front of the Digital PhotoBooth sponsored by CultureMap. (You can see the entire gallery here.)
Every third Friday of the month, from now until October 18, Dallasites can enjoy music, movies and good company under the moonlit sky. A bit of advice: Bring a blanket and a fan, and pre-order a picnic basket from Wolfgang Puck.
