Leslie Moody Castro and Brandon Zech discuss what’s been happening in the art world this summer, including Sotheby’s buying the Breuer Building in NYC, an increase in museum admission prices, and the Dallas Museum of Art picking an architecture firm to redesign its building.

“One element of this new design is a major almost floating contemporary art gallery at the top of the museum…this design and this incoming collection could transform the Dallas Museum of Art into one of the more important museums for contemporary art in America.”
