DescriptionIn anticipation of Super Bowl XLV in February, 2011 at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium, the Dallas Museum of Art will premiere an exhibition in December in honor of the Cowboys Stadium Art Program. This exhibition will feature works by the artists represented in the groundbreaking contemporary art program at the spectacular new Dallas Cowboys Stadium. Artists include Olafur Eliasson, Annette Lawrence, Franz Ackermann, Lawrence Weiner, Teresita Fernandez, Trenton Doyle Hancock, and Dave Muller, to name a few.
