Jeff, the Collection is truly amazing.  In addition to the permanent collection, curated exhibits and other cultural events are held at the museum. The Crow Collection is across the street from the Nasher Sculpture Center and a block away from the Dallas Museum of Art. I'm glad you had time to check out the website.

Joan, the Dallas Arts District is perfect place to spend a day with the entire family.  Klyde Warren Park is just to the north of the area and each museum has something for people of all ages and interests.

Sharon Parisi it sounds like the Crow Collection is superb ... not only beautiful jade and other items to see, but interactive activities as well.  You're lucky to have it nearby!

I can't think of anyone in Dallas who knows and appreciates the Arts better than you Sharon! This year is going by fast, isn't it? I hope you find time to enjoy the flowers of spring! I always enjoy our visits and talks.

Just thought I'd drop by to say hi Sharon! I hope you're doing well and getting rest too. I would love to read a post about what all is involved in mediation and tips to stay out of trouble. The work that you do behind the scenes for mediation is so important. Thank you Sharon.

Patricia,  many think that mediation is a mysterious process and some think it is meditation.  I just returned from a crawfish boil where real estate and mediation were hot topics.
