Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Frozen In The Heat At The Dallas Arboretum

Social distancing is easiest in wide, open spaces. And they don’t get much more wide or open than the Dallas Arboretum.

So head to the great outdoors for some fresh air, beautiful scenery and a bunch of very, very still people lurking about. No, they’re not a bunch of creeps staring blankly at you, but a collection of lifelike art pieces as part of the botanical garden’s “Summer of Sculpture.”

If you haven’t made it out to the gardens in East Dallas on the shores of White Rock Lake for this, it’s worth a visit. Seward Johnson’s “Celebrating the Familiar” exhibit runs through July 31. Scattered throughout the garden you’ll discover 25 from his collection of more than 450 life-size bronze sculptures.

Make it a point to see all 25 because it’s a great way to fill up a few hours of our new, seemingly neverending days. However, we don’t recommend going after 11:00 a.m. or risk melting on the spot.

But you do you.
