Late Nights at the Dallas Museum of Art

Third Fridays, 6:00 p.m.–midnight

From amber waves of grain to purple mountain majesties, explore three centuries of American art and history on Friday, June 16 through tours, talks, music, and our new exhibition Visions of America. The Nasher Sculpture Center and Crow Collection of Asian Art will also be open until midnight for our annual Summer Block Party in the Arts District.

Late Night Happy Hour Performance

Kick off the evening with bluegrass and Americana music performed by the McLeod Nine, one of the most exciting and interesting musical acts in the roots music scene, featuring Gordon and Christy McLeod. 
Friday, June 16, 6:00-7:00 p.m.

Late Night Main Stage

Experience the thoughtful lyrics and catchy melodies of singer-songwriter Bobby Jo Valentine. Hope-folk, soul-pop, poetic rock, Valentine’s music exists outside the lines of any genre. His new album “Fox Eyes, Whale Heart” is available worldwide.
8:00-9:00 p.m., Friday, June 16


Late Night Film

Celebrate the icons of midcentury Americana—cool cars, rock 'n’roll, and diners—with American Graffiti. On the eve of beginning their adult lives, four friends navigate high school relationships while cruising along the main drag, listening to a radio show by the mysterious disc jockey Wolfman Jack. 
Friday, June 16, 9:30 p.m.

Late Night Talk

Drawing from historical events depicted in the exhibition Visions of America: Three Centuries of Prints from the National Gallery of Art, University of Vermont history professor Dr. Mark A. Stoler will discuss why, when it comes to American history, our common knowledge is more myth than fact.
9:00 p.m., Friday, June 16

Late Night After Hours Music Showcase

Jazz saxophonist Drew Zaremba and his zextet will perform a selection of his original compositions. Zaremba is a passionate conductor, an award-winning writer, and a fiery performer who has worked with Wycliffe Gordon, Chuck Findley, and many more.
