Art Car Weekend

In case you didn't know, one of Houston's only claims to world-class fame, the Art Car Parade, is this weekend. Stretching into a string of related events, there's a Sneak Peek at Discovery Green park, 7 pm Friday May 8. Then Saturday, May 9, the big parade rolls down Allen Parkway at 1 pm. Sunday there's an award brunch at the Orange Show from 11-1. It's all FREE.

  1. I would observe that Gerald Peters has REMAINED the “powerhouse” on the art scene in Dallas. Regardless of who was at the helm, it delivered consistently significant and well-curated shows. Plus, to make assumptions regarding “strange, ill-fated interludes” seems, well, unseemly.

    GP has been a marvelous and well-lauded gallery for many, many years. I enjoyed seeing Cornell and Rauschenberg grace their walls as well as their recent exhibit of Terrell James’ work. This is a stellar venue in Dallas and hardly the limping enterprise you describe. If anything, Dallas should applaud its long history of giving us art worth our time and intellect. It’s a touchstone that makes the Dallas art scene shine with an elegance and incandescence that is sorely lacking in many venues.

    And, if GP is, in fact, closing its doors, it’s a collective loss.

    My apologies for disagreeing. But I do.
