Right now we’re in Dallas for a few weeks spending time with family. Our worldly belongings have moved ahead of us to Providence, we’ve turned in our keys to St Louis, and we’re leaving for London and Greece at the end of June.

Dallas is a great city for art-lovers. Great museums and galleries — the DMA, the Dallas Contemporary, Art Prostitute, and Angstrom, the Crow Collection, to name a few. Plus, it’s just a short drive to the first-class offerings of Fort Worth’s art district, like the Kimbell and the Modern. We’ll be posting about all these places and more in the next few weeks.

Then, there’s NorthPark Center. The ridiculously high-end mall with the equally high-end art collection. NorthPark is beautiful in every way: architecture and design, store design, landscape design, and artwork. It’s a collecting institution, and there is thoughtfully sited artwork everywhere you look. NorthPark is truly, even though it’s technically a “shopping center,” an art destination not to be missed.

    Another thing to check while there in Barneys there is a new line of lipsticks out called Lipstick Queen.
