Our first stop on Sunday was the Dallas Museum Of Art. There was a lot of open space to the point where it felt like half the museum was empty. However, the standard collection is free, so we won’t complain too much! We did enjoy several works by Gunther Gerzso and Frida Kahlo in particular.
From the museum we walked through downtown and stumbled on the beautiful Chapel of Thanksgiving with its colorful spiral stained glass paneled roof.
Just a few blocks away is the famous Giant Eyeball sculpture. Since it is located on private property you can only get a photo from the sidewalk…
Another half mile across downtown is the JFK Memorial Plaza. In a city already filled with concrete, this was a bit of a letdown to be honest.
West Village was a bit bland and sterile for our tastes, but the free trolley we took toward downtown was worthwhile.
Definitely a hip, artsy neighborhood, with lots of restaurants. On Monday we explored several of the side streets enjoying the mix of murals.
Trinity Strand Trail
On Sunday morning we walked part of the trail and stumbled across several murals including this large American flag.
