|Mar. 8||Stars of the Future|
Mar. 9-10 AT&T Performing Arts Center presents William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Shakespeare's intertwined love polygons begin to get complicated from the start - Demetrius and Lysander both want Hermia but she only has eyes for Lysander. Bad news is, Hermia's father wants Demetrius for a son-in-law. On the outside is Helena, whose unreturned love burns hot for Demetrius. Hermia and Lysander plan to flee from the city under cover of darkness but are pursued by an enraged Demetrius (who is himself pursued by an enraptured Helena). In the forest, unbeknownst to the mortals, Oberon and Titania (King and Queen of the faeries) are having a spat over a servant boy. The plot twists up when Oberon's head mischief-maker, Puck, runs loose with a flower which causes people to fall in love with the first thing they see upon waking. Throw in a group of labourers preparing a play for the Duke's wedding (one of whom is given a donkey's head and Titania for a lover by Puck) and the complications become fantastically funny. Performances are at the Nancy B. Hamon Hall in the Winspear Opera House, 2403 Flora St. Information: www.attpac.org.
Through Apr. 27 Best known for his large-scale earthworks, Robert Smithson visited the state of Texas multiple times in the years 1966-1973, conceiving works that utilized the Texas land as his medium. Robert Smithson in Texas is the first examination of five projects Smithson proposed throughout the state of Texas. The exhibition presents lesser-known drawings, photographs, and sculpture related to Smithson's Texas-based projects from a period of his career that was bookended by the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport project from 1966-67 and Smithson's only realized work in Texas, the 1973 Amarillo Ramp. The Dallas Museum of Art is located at 1717 N. Harwood. Information: www.dallasmuseumofart.org.
Through May 25 Let china.porsche take you for a spin. Ma Jun, (b. 1974) brings a number of value systems together for a rich yield in the series he calls "New China." The "New China" series includes various shapes-including radios, soda bottles, books, a lipstick, and cars-all in a style traditionally used on painted ceramics. Ma Jun's first four car sculptures were Buicks, reflecting his visit to a car show in Beijing in 2002, where a futuristic Buick twirling high in the air started his thinking about cars and China-about desires past and future-about what a Chinese car might be. A Porsche was suggested by Trammell S. Crow for the series, and china.porsche was commissioned and realized in conjunction with the Crow Collection. The Crow Collection of Asian Art is located at 2010 Flora St. Information: www.crowcollection.org.

Fort Worth:Twice Daily, 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. The Texas Longhorn and the American cowboy are two of the most enduring symbols of the Old West. They're a big reason why Fort Worth earned the nickname "Cowtown." And they formed the core of the great cattle drives of the late nineteenth century. Now, the romance and mystique of cowboys and cattle drives returns to Fort Worth with The Herd - Texas Longhorns driven by genuine Texas cowhands - offering an unforgettable glimpse into the past. You'll hear the jingle of spurs, the cattle bawling, and the rhythm of the hoof beats. As The Herd passes, a bygone era comes to life before your eyes. The world's only twice-daily cattle drive happens at 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily in the Stockyards National Historic District, 130 E. Exchange Ave. in Fort Worth. Look for the Drovers before and after each cattle drive for photo opportunities and to learn more about life on the trail!
