DART to Special Events


Through Jan. 31 Drawn to Action: The Life and Work of Arthur Szyk is on exhibit at the Dallas Holocaust Museum, 211 N. Record St. When Hitler invaded Poland, caricaturist and activist Arthur Szyk was drawn to action. His pen became a weapon against hatred and injustice. His artwork became his way of participating in the war against the Nazis and the Axis powers. He was on a mission, literally “to alert and inform the Americans about the gravity of the situation in Europe.” Eleanor Roosevelt described him as "a one-man army" for the Allied cause. Information: www.dallasholocaustmuseum.org.

Through Jan. 31 The Marvel Experience at Fair Park is a state-of-the-art, mind-blowing, traveling theme park, of sorts. You will be able to put on a super-power wristband and join forces with Marvel Comics' superheroes to help save the universe. The 90-minute-plus interactive experience brings its domes, activity areas, technology, and 4-D ride to Dallas as the second stop on its debut tour. Ticket prices can vary depending upon the ticket holder age, day of week, and any extras you might want to add to your experience. Plus, you will want to have some cash in your pocket for the gift shop ... because saving the universe deserves a souvenir. The Experience will be set up in the parking lot next to Fair Park Coliseum, 1300 Robert B. Cullum Blvd. (main entrance). Information: themarvelexperiencetour.com.

Through Feb. 15 A highlight of the Dallas Theater Center's season is the world premiere of Stagger Lee, a musical that takes its title from the century old folk song that became a Number One R&B hit for Lloyd Price in 1959. The story spans the 20th Century, tracing mythical characters in their quest to achieve the American Dream. The deep seated themes of racism and the raw power of human will are sure to give you chills. And the music - from Joplin inspired tunes to R&B and hiphop - will definitely get your feet moving. Book and lyrics by Will Power, music by Will Power and Justin Ellington, and directed by Patricia McGregor. Performances are at the Wyly Theatre, 2400 Flora St. in the AT&T Performing Arts Center. Information: www.attpac.org.

Through Feb. 20 The Oak Cliff Cultural Center presents Tierra Firme by fiber artists Analise Minjaez and Sarita Westrup. Tierra Firme will be on view January 23 through February 20, 2015 at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center, 223 W. Jefferson Blvd. Tierra Firme showcases the individual and collaborative works by Analise Minjarez and Sarita Westrup, two fibers artists from the borderlands of Texas and Mexico. Their installations and sculptural works respond to the geographic and bicultural location of the artists’ home. They utilize multiple media, such as wood, natural dyed cloth, nets, paper, and gut to dissect borders and explore concepts of cultural identity in relationship to place. Information: www.dallasculture.org.

Through Feb. 28 Penguin Days are back at the Dallas Zoo, 650 South R.L. Thornton Frwy. The temperature is dropping and so is the price of admission to the Dallas Zoo. Throughout January and February, guests can visit the African penguins (and all the other animals) for just $5 per person. The Dallas Zoo is open 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily. Information: www.dallaszoo.com.

Through May 31 Big Bend: Photographs by Terry Cockerham is presented by Irving Arts Center in the Dupree Lobby at the Irving Arts Center, 3333 N. MacArthur Blvd. The exhibit features dramatic black and white photographs of Big Bend National Park, famous for its natural resources and spectacular geology, by Irving Resident Terry Cockerham. Admission is free. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursday evenings, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Information: www.irvingartscenter.com.

Jan. 30, Feb. 1, Feb. 4, Feb. 7 The Dallas Opera performs La Wally and Everest, a double bill, sung in Italian/English with English supertitles. La Wally by Alfredo Catalani, the first half of this exciting double bill, is the climactic final act of an opera about a free-spirited and fiercely passionate young woman who realizes, too late, that love delayed isn't always love denied. Everest by Joby Talbot is set on the slopes of Mount Everest. Luck and the weather can turn with equal ferocity and swiftness, and dreams die even for the most valiant of men. British composer Joby Talbot's first opera - a Dallas Opera world premiere with a libretto by Gene Scheer (Moby-Dick) - confronts the tragic events surrounding an ill-fated Everest expedition with a cast that includes tenor Andrew Bidlack, mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke, bass Kevin Burdette, and baritone Craig Verm. Both performances are family rated PG-13 with adult themes. Four performances are set for the Winspear Opera House, 2403 Flora St. Information: dallasopera.org.

Denton:

The building itself is beautiful with architectural details that make the courthouse shine as an icon for Denton County. The best part about the Courthouse-on-the-Square is that everything in Denton seems to revolve around it. With something going on every day on the Square, there is no such thing as a dull day in downtown Denton. Whether you're looking for a place to listen to live music, grab a drink, or even an old-fashioned ice cream sundae, you only have to walk a few steps from the Courthouse to find it.
