Late Nights at the DMA

The Dallas Museum of Art celebrated it's 111th birthday during its Late Nights program, Friday, January 17, 2014. Live music from Brave Combo and Diana Dill Savage, along with yoga for kids, creating mixed media birthday hats, bedtime stories with Arturo, lectures and book signings, and the Edward Hopper exhibit were all part of the celebration. Six-year-old Benjamin Adams had a birds eye view of the dance floor from the shoulders of his father, Brandon Adams. Mr. Adams celebrated his birthday dancing to Brave Combo at the museum's festivities.
