Pollock-Inspired Scenes From The DMA's Final Late Nights Event Of The Year.

On the third Friday of each month (excluding December), we get the gift of Late Nights at the Dallas Museum of Art. It's a party thrown by the museum from six to midnight that invites all of Dallas out for a night of after-hours music, activities, lectures, film screenings, tours, alcohol and, of course, art. Hundreds of art fans come out for the family-friendly artistic festivities that are often centered around the touring exhibits that currently on display.

The most recent of these Late Nights went down this past Friday, and it celebrated the public opening of the museum's new Jackson Pollock “Blind Spots” exhibit, now on display until March. The exhibit boasts one of the most comprehensive collections of Pollock's works since his death in 1956.

In addition to his famous colorful drip-painting abstractions were some of his lesser-known black-and-white works from 1951, as well as five out of his six sculptures known to exist. The curators carefully selected the works that best served to portray a more comprehensive view of Pollock, one that cleared up many of the misunderstandings and gaps in the common conception of his work.

It was inspiring to see Pollock's works up close, many removed from their glass homes to give the public an even more intimate look into every part of his artwork.

And, this inspired, we decided that, instead of taking snapshots of smiling artsy-fartsy Dallasites mingling about the event, we should get a little artistic as well. Hence us taking the below photos at the event — ones we think even Pollock might appreciate.
