Through hands-on activities and augmented reality technology, guests will discover that a diversity of species evolved as a result of continental drift. Perot Museum, 2201 N.

DALLAS: Sept. 9-Dec. 9 "Dalí: Poetics of the Small" This is the first in-depth exploration of the small-scale paintings of Salvador Dalí (1904–1989). While many of Dalí's canvases are known around the world and are among the defining works of the Surrealist movement, the small size of many of these works is frequently overlooked. Nearly half of the artist's paintings during the early part of his Surrealist period (1929–1936) were actually small format works: some measuring just over a foot, and others as small as 3 by 2 inches. Organized by the Meadows as part of its mission to present Spanish art in America. Meadows Museum, 5900 Bishop Blvd. meadowsmuseumdallas.org 214-768-2516

Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden, 8525 Garland Road. dallasarboretum.org 214-515-6525
