Art Smart

Hi Kids,

I hope you got my post card from Dallas. As I told you, I went to a lot of museums last weekend. The picture above is me in the Nasher Sculpture Garden. I'm sitting in a sculpture by Barbara Hepworth, a famous English sculptor. After Miss Elaine took my picture, she saw a sign that said, "Do not touch the sculptures." I don't think I hurt it -- I sat very softly.

We also went to the Dallas Museum of Art. This little girl was drawing a picture of some of the art. There were lots of pictures but also pottery, sculpture, even furniture. The dressing table and stool pictured below were made of silver. They were made over a hundred years ago for the 1900 Paris World's Fair.

Our guide at the Dallas Museum of Art was named Molly Kysar. That's her married name. She thinks probably her husband is related to Mrs. Kysar's husband but she didn't know for sure. She was very friendly.

We also went to the Crow Collection of Asian Art. I loved this dragon. There were also lots of things made out of jade. I saw lots of beautiful things in Dallas.
