Nasher Sculpture Center

Museum in Dallas

Modern-art installations shine at the fabulous glass-and-steel Nasher Sculpture Center. The Nashers accumulated what might be one of the greatest privately held sculpture collections in the world, with works by Calder, de Kooning, Rodin, Serra and Miró. The divine sculpture garden is one of the best in the country.

Check the calendar for gallery talks, hands-on art days for kids, and free evening concerts and film screenings in the garden. Even the Renzo Piano–designed wing is a work of art.
