LOST TO HISTORY: Ever heard of Salvator Rosa? I hadn’t either until the announcement came a while back of the Kimbell’s current show, “Salvator Rosa: Bandits, Wilderness, and Magic.” The exhibition is the first major showing of the 17th Century Italian painter’s work in the U.S. That’s probably because he never quite reached the grand scale of some of his contemporaries during his lifetime. But, as Gaile Robinson details in her dfw.com review, it wasn’t for lack of trying.
CLARK COMES HOME: The Women’s Chorus of Dallas has scored quite a coup for its upcoming concert – Dallas native Victoria Clark. Clark graduated from Hockaday before moving on to Broadway and won a Tony in 2006 for playing the mother in The Light in the Piazza. She talks about growing up in Dallas and what winning that Tony meant to her in a theaterjones.com Q&A.
LOCAL TIES: Robert A.M. Stern, the dean of the Yale School of Architecture, has won the Driehaus Prize for Classical Architecture given through the University of Notre Dame. If that name isn’t immediately familiar, it will become more so in the coming years – Stern is the designer of the George W. Bush Presidential Center being built on the SMU campus.
