Launched in October 2020, Nasher Public is a year-long, two-pronged public art initiative which aims to generate access to public art by North Texas artists at the Nasher and throughout the greater Dallas community.
Nasher Public offers artists occasions to exhibit their work at a time when such opportunities in traditional spaces—museums and art galleries—remain limited, while allowing the public to experience works of art in person when visitation to museums and art spaces is restricted.
