The custom-made jeans you were planning to wear to the big concert next weekend can stay in the closet. And there’s no need to have your custom-made suit from Edward Baumann dry cleaned for the splashy annual fundraiser your firm sponsors. Thanks to Covid-19, your calendar is more open than it has been in years.
Galas and gatherings have been cancelled or postponed. Art museums have closed their doors. Theaters are dark, the curtain has come down on the opera and the symphony, and all the ballet dancers are making a point to stay home.
But, while you might not be able to use those tickets you had purchased for the concert or show, you can still enjoy an array of Dallas’s finest art and entertainment.
Enjoy Virtual Events and Offerings
Musicians, magicians, actors, rock groups and other artists as well as museums, theaters and other cultural organizations around the globe have been offering virtual experiences – many at absolutely no cost – to a world in quarantine. Dallas’s treasure trove of arts and entertainment venues are no exception.
So, whether on your own or with the family, make plans to enjoy these and the many other virtual tours and happenings available in Dallas:
- Dallas Comedy House is offering a variety of online classes, including comedy classes, podcasting classes and more.
- You can browse the Dallas Museum of Art’s 25,000 works of art and find additional resources online at DMA at Home. And that’s just for starters. The museum also invites you to experience the Speechless: different by design exhibition in 3D or enjoy a virtual tour of Flores Mexicanas: Women in Modern Mexican Art, an exhibition on view only for the second time in nearly a century, and For a Dreamer of Houses.
- The Dallas Symphony Orchestra is taking their music online! Check out their Facebook or YouTube page to listen in.
Visit Dallas has even more virtual events and opportunities that won’t require you to dress up in your bespoke custom suit from Edward Baumann. Of course, that doesn’t mean you can’t wear a tailored suit in Dallas’s virtual arts entertainment arena.
