Meadows Museum Announce Upcoming Exhibitions

Beginning November 6, the Meadows will present Ten Works, Ten Years: Collection Highlights at the New Meadows Museum, a tenth-anniversary celebration of the museum’s new building that highlights significant gifts to the museum’s permanent collection. On view through January 15, 2012, the exhibition will feature exquisite works – one acquired during each of the past ten years since the Meadows’ new building opened to the public. Notable acquisitions include the portraits Richard Worsam Meade by Vicente López y Portaña, King Charles II by Juan Carreño de Miranda and nineteenth-century landscapes by artists such as Joaquín Sorolla and Aureliano de Beruete. The new building was created to house the expanding permanent collection, and to provide more space for future exhibitions, and includes an outdoor plaza and sculpture garden featuring Jaume Plensa’s monumental sculpture Sho (2007).

Meadows Museum
The Meadows Museum is the leading U.S. institution focused on the study and presentation of the art of Spain. In 1962, Dallas businessman and philanthropist Algur H. Meadows donated his private collection of Spanish paintings, as well as funds to start a museum, to Southern Methodist University. The museum opened to the public in 1965, marking the first step in fulfilling Meadows’ vision to create a “Prado on the Prairie.
