The Dallas Museum of Art has a strong and diverse offering of exhibitions scheduled for the remainder of 2014. To help you plan your next trip to the museum, we’ve highlighted five current and upcoming exhibits that represent a variety of cultures from the 18th Century to today.
An aloof cat contemplates the purpose of art in society; dripping-wet otterhounds partake in a moment of respite from their midday hunt; a small black cat nestles into the chest of composer Igor Stravinsky; a menacing dog leaps onto the hood of a car in modern-day suburbia. Scenes like these, reflecting the historically fluid roles of our favorite pets, make up the Blanton Museum of Art’s newest exhibition, In the Company of Cats and Dogs.
