Community Day: Meadows Museum

Passport to Spain

SMU students
Saturday, April 18

10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Meadows Museum Open House

Travel to Spain without ever leaving Dallas and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Meadows Museum as part of Community Day on the SMU campus. This special program will highlight some of the major artists in the Museum's collection and their diverse birthplaces. Explore your senses and experience the costumes, music, dance and personalities of the different regions of Spain represented throughout the galleries. Picture yourself in a work of art and take home a photo souvenir. Sample the flavors of Spanish foods and enjoy fun, hands-on art activities for all ages both inside the Museum and outside on the sculpture plaza. Artist John Bramblitt will demonstrate how he creates colorful paintings using only his sense of touch.

The Museum welcomes visitors of all abilities, and with advance notice, interpreters are available for those with hearing loss.

Admission and parking for this event is free and open to the public.
