Upcoming Photo Walk

No photo walks currently scheduled

Join Executive Director Peter Poulides at the Nasher Sculpture Center for a morning of blending 2D and 3D art together. Located in the heart of the Dallas Arts District, the Nasher Sculpture Center is home to one of the finest collections of modern and contemporary sculptures in the world. On this walk, we’ll be exploring the Nasher garden and photographing the sculptures in unique and interesting ways.

Admission to the Nasher Sculpture Center is FREE every first Saturday of the month, so you will not need to pay for a ticket to get into the museum.

We’ll begin the photo walk at the front entrance of the Nasher. Our instructor will be there to answer questions, offer suggestions, and give some feedback on your photos. After the photo walk, attendees will be able to walk around the sculpture center independently.

A few days before the photo walk we’ll meet online for a brief Zoom session to go over logistics. Your instructor will give you some ideas of what to expect and photography tips to get you ready.

Any camera will do – smartphone, DSLR, mirrorless, film.

Please bring a mask for instances when you are near your fellow photographers.
