In anticipation of Super Bowl XLV in February, 2011 at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium, the Dallas Museum of Art will premiere an exhibition in December in honor of the Cowboys Stadium Art Program. This exhibition will feature works by the artists represented in the groundbreaking contemporary art program at the spectacular new Dallas Cowboys Stadium. Artists include Olafur Eliasson, Annette Lawrence, Franz Ackermann, Lawrence Weiner, Teresita Fernandez, Trenton Doyle Hancock, and Dave Muller, to name a few. The internationally important collection, initiated by Gene and Jerry Jones and the Jones family, is one of the most innovative and ambitious public art programs in the world. In addition to celebrating the art in the Dallas Cowboys Stadium, this exhibition highlights the emergence of North Texas as a leader in innovation in art and architecture of the present moment.
Big New Field: Artists in the Cowboys Stadium Art Program will present works from Dallas Museum of Art and private collections in a wide variety of media, including painting, sculpture, works on paper and media installation, allowing visitors to explore in greater depth the work of the Cowboys Stadium Art Program’s accomplished artists from North Texas, the United States and beyond.
