My aunt and uncle are big public radio listeners. I wanted to get them something related to public radio, but the added challenge of something from the Dallas Arts District made me think that maybe I had met my gift match. Luckily, the Dallas Museum of Art just announced their 20th Anniversary season of Arts and Letters Live, and since they always offer up plenty of public radio personalities and contributors, I thought I’d search for their perfect gift here. I had a lot to choose from, and ended up settling on tickets to a lecture with one of my aunt and uncle’s favorites: Julie Burstein, creator of Studio 360. It’s a great program you can catch on KERA Saturdays at 1 PM that features insights into the minds of writers, artists, and creativity in general. She’ll be promoting her new book Spark: How Creativity Works during the lecture and will be tailoring some of the material to reflect interviews with artists who have work exhibited in the Dallas Museum of Art’s collections along with other influential authors, some of whom have previously been part of the Arts & Letters Live series. The lecture is at the Horchow Auditorium inside the Dallas Museum of Art on February 22.
Tickets are $30 a piece for a total of $60 altogether. A bit over my budget, but then as I calculated in the last budget, I have an extra $30 to work with that I saved on other gifts.
7th gift bought and checked off the list!
