Take to the Streets for the Grand Opening of the Museum of Street Culture
Encore Park’s Museum of Street Culture, a museum in the making for the last five years, invites you to attend its debut! Founded by Dallas-based writer, photographer, and filmmaker Alan Govenar and designed in part by French museographer Adrien Gardère, this groundbreaking museum will open with a 12-month phased exhibition entitled “Looking for Home: A Yearlong Focus on the Work of Mary Ellen Mark.”
The exhibition will present Mark’s work in an unprecedented fashion, with installations both outside on the street and inside some of the spaces the museum calls home: The Stewpot and Encore Park’s 508 Park, 508 Amphitheater, and Community Garden. To mark this grand opening, the event will feature complimentary lunch refreshments, a special guided tour through the exhibit, and entertaining performances by the Lone Star Circus performers and local buskers. Don’t miss this groundbreaking community event!
At Lakeside Villas Apartments in Grand Prairie, Texas, it is clear that we have it all, but we still feel obliged to inform you of all the events our community has scheduled. Please feel free to join in all of the fun at this event!
