The Dallas Museum of Art's Hit ‘Dior' Exhibit Is Getting a 2-month-long Encore

All that clamor over the DMA's Dior: From Paris to the World exhibit appears to have paid off. Today, the museum announced it's extending the show through Oct. 27. It had originally been scheduled to wrap up at the beginning of September. The show opened back in May to near universal acclaim from Dallas' art-goers and art writers, including our own Rick Brettell who called it "The most ambitious — and no doubt expensive — installation in the museum's history." It features work from Christian Dior himself alongside that of subsequent Dior head-honchos such as Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and Maria Grazia Chiuri. A complex installation shows off their designs, as well as the creative processes and inspirations that lie behind them. Following in the footsteps of the Denver Art Museum, where the exhibit first appeared last year, the show also includes artworks from the DMA's permanent collection.Details"Dior: From Paris to the World" runs though Oct. 27 at the Dallas Museum of Art, 1717 N. Harwood St. in Dallas. Timed tickets are required for all visitors, including DMA members.  Continue reading...
