- The University of Texas at Dallas has announced the first recipient of The Richard Brettell Award in the Arts. The award recognizes the essential and fundamental role of the arts in the life of the University and our community. Every other year the award will honor an artist working in or between disciplines including the visual arts, music, literature, performance, architecture, and design. Hear from Peter Walker as he speaks at Nasher Sculpture Center tonight.
- Also in Dallas, the play “Really” uses the lens of photography to explore three lives and asks what do we try to leave behind, what do we actually leave behind, and how do we deal with being left. See the regional premiere by Jackie Sibblies Drury at the Undermain Theatre.
- And in Denton, UNT celebrates poet Wayne Miller, winner of the University’s Rilke Prize. The $10,000 prize recognizes a book written by a mid-career poet and published in the preceding year that demonstrates exceptional artistry and vision. Head downtown to UNT on the Square for a reading and Q&A with Miller.
