Art&Seek Plans Your Week

by Nilufer Arsala 31 Oct 2011 10:58 AM

Up this week: Halloween fun tonight, plus Joan Rivers comes to town.


Happy Halloween! Start the week off by taking your little ghoul or goblin to McKinney Main Street for some family-friendly fun and safe trick or treating. Ghoul and Goblin free? Then a nice adult evening at the Meyerson with the music of Grammy winner Herbie Hancock sounds lovely for a Monday night. The celebrations just keep coming this week though, so be prepared.  Events commemorating the Day of the Dead are happening both at the Bath House Cultural Center in Dallas and Arts 5th Avenue in Fort Worth.

There is a lot of dancing happening this week as well. SMU will hold its Fall Concert, while Contemporary Dance/Fort Worth puts on a Barking Moon Dance complete with a chicken dance contest at intermission. Be careful, I can do a mean chicken dance.

Also on the docket: Gavin Degraw will play the Verizon Theatre in support of his fourth album, Edie Brickell and Heavy Make-Up will play a show of improvised music at the Kessler, and comedy legend Joan Rivers makes a stop at Bass Performance Hall. Other notables include the one woman show Blind Dates at Contemporary Theatre of Dallas and Learning about the Tyler, Texas Black Film Collection at SMU. History is awesome- it’s like fiction, but real!

Guess what! Art&Seek has a new smart phone app that you can download for free! While you’re there, don’t forget to sign up for the free weekly e-newsletter that’s super-fun. Today, I’ll leave you with some old school Joan Rivers from the Ed Sullivan Show in 1967. Have a great week and be safe tonight!
