Friday Morning Roundup

by Anne Bothwell 18 Mar 2011 8:22 AM

Politics, politics, politics…with a little window dressing. Thank goodness it’s Friday!


Dallas Politics: Mayoral candidate Ron Natinsky offers his plan for West Dallas development. (Jerome laid out the basics of the city’s plan here, and spoke with planner Brent Brown here.) Slightly related: This reminds me to remind you to mark your calendars for April 20, when the Dallas mayoral candidates will share their views on arts and culture issues at a forum at the Nasher.

NPR Politics: You may have heard about this.  Sigh. Elsewhere, here’s the head of Minnesota Public Radio hinting we shouldn’t say good by to Garrison quite yet.

Broadway Politics: Remember Fat Pig, one of Neil LaBute’s Beauty Plays staged by the Dallas Theater Center in the black box theater at the Wyly? Well, you’ll have to wait a bit longer to see it on Broadway…

Artsy Windows: To celebrate the arrival of Dallas Art Fair, artists take over the windows at Nieman’s downtown once again.  The following are participating, according to press release in my inbox this a.m.: Bill Davenport reinterprets Bill’s Junk, originally installed at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston; Ed Marquand, Owner and Creative Director, Marquand Books; Jeremy Mora nominated by Stephen Ross, Curator of Education, Nasher Sculpture Center; Selven O’Keef Jarmon nominated by Toby Kamps, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, The Menil Collection; Sour Grapes nominated by Peter Doroshenko, Director, Dallas Contemporary; Wunderkammer of Webb Gallery, Waxahachie; Artist Edward Setina nominated by artist Richard Patterson.
