  • FIRST SCULPTURE...A collection of man-made objects - some personal tools and some primitive art that underpin humans need to create. Notable, a 1.5 million year old Limestone spheroid found in Israel ...  more »
  • The Art District of Dallas is very interesting, but get to the Nasher Sculpture Center was particularly exciting: first of all because, knowing that was designed by our Renzo Piano, I was filled with pride. It is a very modern building, which communicates a great sense of peace, especially when it goes into the garden, which is truly an oasis of tranquility and silence. The sculptures are many and great, invaluable: works of Rodin, Mirò, Moore, Brancusi. Walking through the Museum, the feeling is that the loss of the dimension of time and a great serenity that surrounds everything. Really interesting, complete and unique. Right near the Dallas Museum of Art, not to be missed.

  • Just, wow. The Nasher is another beautiful jewel in the downtown Dallas Arts District. A lovely, modern space filled with some world class sculpture. The staff are friendly and extremely knowledgeable about everything surrounding them. During our visit we chatted with a curator about several pieces. He was gracious and unpretentious. The main gallery usually comprises of a rotating exhibition while the second main space contains works that reinforce and support the first. The on-site restaurant may look unassuming but is nothing to sneeze at. And be sure to check out the artful gift shop that contains items in a variety of price ranges. And don't forget about the outdoor sculpture gardens! It's a beautiful Oasis in the middle of downtown. My one tiny criticism is the size of the Nasher. If you come here expecting hours of browsing you may be disappointed. It's rather small and can be covered in just over an hour. The small $10 entrance fee reflects that so I'm okay. If you are visiting the Dallas Museum of Art next door the Nasher is a no-brainer.
  • As a 2013 Nasher Summer Institute alumni, i can honestly say that the staff here put nothing less than their hearts and souls into what they do. Everyone from the curators to the artwork preservation staff are super passionate about their jobs. The gardens are lush, serene and amazingly well kept both plant and art wise. I've also been to one of the events here ( 'til midnight at nasher?) and hearing a band live on the grounds is truly an experience. The inside is always clean and i don't think I've ever felt unsafe there. Definitely a gem!
  • Lots and lots and lots of modern sculpture. Not my cup of tea. The building is interesting and the garden is lovely. Put it on the list if you haven't been. and don't miss the garden.
  • The Nasher is my favorite museum downtown, albeit they are a bit much with security. You can even stand behind the barrier and they still hound you, even when those pieces are already under protective glass or an enclosure. It's starting to feel a little targeted and makes it uncomfortable and hard to enjoy the art. They also practice inconsistent rules when it comes to the movies in the garden and what you can bring in to sit on. Those are the only things that have spoiled my visits there. But all in all, I do love the art and that is what keeps me coming back and as a member.
  • Great 'permanent' collection and unique sculpture exhibits. The Nasher is a great place to visit in the Dallas Arts District. Special days such as "Nasher Till Midnight" and "First Saturday" (free entry first Saturday of the month) are great community events .
