3 Must-See Dallas Art Exhibits This October


From a never-before-seen Vincent Van Gogh exhibit to a new immersive art installation, here are three must-see art exhibitions in Dallas this October.

Van Gogh and the olive groves

Dallas Museum of Art

October 17 to February 2022

The eagerly awaited Van Gogh and the olive groves The exhibition is the first devoted solely to the artist’s series of olive groves. Produced in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in the last year of his life, this series was co-organized by the DMA and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. Dallas will host its only North American site before heading to the Netherlands. Painted during his stay in the asylum (At the gates of eternity is a great movie to refresh the story), the Van Gogh series captures the surrounding olive trees through the seasons. This is the first time that these paintings have been exhibited together.

Sweet Tooth Hotel’s “REWIND” made its Allen debut in October.

Other featured designers include fiber artist and muralist Sam lao, illustrator Niki Dionne, multidisciplinary artist MOM, multidisciplinary artist Andy arkley, and painter, illustrator and graffiti artist Hatziel Flores. Accompanying the exhibition, you will also find “a fully-fledged vintage video store filled with VHS tapes and a few hidden spaces to discover”.
