Curtains Open on New Arts & Life Section

Another work week is in the books.

As you pull into your driveway, you’re ready and welcoming to the weekend ahead. You’re in the driver seat to make the next two days as relaxing or exciting as you like – but do you know where to find the best performances, shopping events, travel information or healthy living and cooking ideas to make the weekend memorable? Lucky for you, Dallas is filled with museums, top-notch restaurants and an illustrious culture of performing arts.

For years The Dallas Morning News has been a staunch advocate of the arts, and for a good reason. The arts are so much more than bright lights on a stage and the chimes of intermission or vibrant watercolors on canvas. Art gives us a chance to focus less on the fictional hardships of our everyday life and step back to envision ourselves in a world of imagination and wonder.

The Dallas Morning News is uniquely positioned to help our readers discover arts, culture, people, lifestyles and more in North Texas – to ensure you know when and where to go and prevent you from missing out on a moment of the performance while rushing to your seat.

Get your popcorn ready.

You hear a lot of buzz in the newspaper industry about the shift to digital. Indeed, The Dallas Morning News has invested heavily in rebuilding its business around a digital-first newsroom. But we still believe in the power of our print product. In fact, we’re giving print a renewed focus to make it even more inviting and engaging for readers.
