Dallas Museum of Art Will Dedicate an Exhibition to Bad Bunny

This Friday, April 7, 2023, the Dallas Museum of Art will dedicate an exhibition to Bad Bunny for symbolizing Latin culture in such a creative way. The museum is said to highlight his political and social representation on behalf of the Latino community. In honor of his almost idolized perspective by the music industry, the museum will turn its attention to one of the biggest history-making, Latin artists.

Sara Greenberg, the Dallas Museum of Art’s director of adult programs, shares what the process was behind the chosen exhibition:

“We, at the beginning of every season, take a look at a long list of different themes and try to keep our finger on the pulse of different themes with what’s happened and resonated in pop culture. Bad Bunny has risen to the forefront of mainstream music, and we wanted to honor that.”

This museum had been the host to many similar exhibitions dedicated to different artists, all part of a monthly series called Pop of Art 

The Dallas Museum of Art’s Pop of Art series has looked based its exhibitions on icons such as David Lynch and his TV show Twin Peaks, the Marvel Studios film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and the Super Mario video game series. And it has now chosen the Puerto Rican legend to influence the vibe of this exhibit in a culturally diverse way.

The menu of the Puerto Rican flavored night is Camarones Agua Chile, Al Pastor Tostadas, and Choco Flan with Shredded Coconut. 

The exhibition is from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. consisting of five interactive activities, and this is the schedule:
