Marc Chagall in Dallas

Double luck on Easter Sunday at the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA): not only was there an open parking space across the street, but once inside, the same ticket was good for both the Cindy Sherman and Marc Chagall exhibitions, one right after the other.

Chagall (1887-1985) artifacts on display include costumes he designed for a World War Two era ballet, sculptures, miscellaneous ceramic items and paintings. Groovy times.  

I remember as a kid seeing stained glass windows by Chagall in a small chapel outside of Petersburg, Virginia at the edge of a Civil War battlefield -- or was that in a dream?

"Dance like hypnotized chickens . . . " (Iggy Pop, "Lust for Life," 1977). Ha!

Erik, Chagall is one of my favorite artists. He even does a dreamy mermaid pic!
