"The Art Circle" Visit to the Dallas Museum of Art

with Iván Pérez-Rosselló

Join the newly formed "Art Circle" for a visit and tour at the Dallas Museum of Art


Meet Iart-circleván Pérez-Rosselló, an architect and artist whose passion and expertise bring a unique flavor to the art and architecture scene. As a board member of the Harvard Club of Dallas, Iván is spearheading the creation of the Art Circle "SIG," aligning with the club's mission to support nonprofit organizations. With over two decades of experience, his engaging storytelling and deep insights offer a lively and enriching perspective on the creative world. Join Iván for an unforgettable exploration of the arts, where learning becomes an exciting adventure into the realms of innovative design and cultural beauty.

The hope is that this will be the first of many monthly meet-ups to visit various arts venues around DFW.

The group will convene at the main entrance of the museum facing Klyde Warren Park. Ivan be there 10 minutes before the scheduled start to greet everyone. The tour will begin at the museum's highest level, proceeding efficiently through all the galleries. The aim is to cover this in approximately one hour. Afterward, there's an optional gathering for coffee or snacks at the Nasher Sculpture Center. This is a casual, pay-your-own-way part of the day, offering a chance for further conversation and relaxation. Please note that parking is available at the DMA.
