Uptown's Canvas Hotel has reopened for the summer.
In celebration of the first official weekend of summer, we’ve rounded up some of the best events in Dallas this weekend — all socially distanced of course. Also, don’t forget to celebrate the father figure in your life this Sunday. Still need a Father’s Day gift or meal reservations or takeout? We’ve got you.
Experience a Different Kind of Art Exhibit
If you’ve missed visiting your favorite museums, Dallas artist Jeremiah Onifadé’s anticipated (and social distancing-friendly) follow up to his artistic debut opens this Friday at 6 pm. In collaboration with the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture, “Blue Dot” will be open for 24 hours a day (for 96 hours straight) inside of a Bonton neighborhood home (2727 Rochester Street).
Earlier this week, we caught up with Onifadé to learn more about his unifying vision for this weekend’s event, including its unique location.
