Contemplating creativity at the Dallas Museum of Art

The city's most prestigious cultural institution also houses a collection of Coco Chanel items.

On this beautiful and informative visit, you can see some 24,000 works covering 5,000 years of human creativity—from the Third millennium BC to the present day. Designed by Edward Larrabee Barnes, winner of the 2007 American Institute of Architects Gold Medal, the museum's American art collection highlights paintings by Edward Hopper and Georgia O'Keeffe. The Spanish colonial art section is impressive as well and make sure you stop by the particularly remarkable German contemporary art section—exhibiting Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke and Anselm Kiefer. The Wendy and Emery Reves Collection exhibits more than 1,400 impressionist and postimpressionist paintings, sculptures and drawings that these aesthetes gathered between the 1940s and 1960s. Surprisingly, the institution also displays a collection of objects that belonged to Coco Chanel in a space recreated like the interior of the famous La Pausa villa, former Côte d'Azur home of the French fashion designer.
