Through Oct. 6 America Will Be!: Surveying the Contemporary Landscape draws on works from the Dallas Museum of Arts' permanent collection. The exhibition explores the different ways artists have approached the intersection of landscapes and built environments, and how individuals and communities figure into it all. The landscape was used to mythologize the origins of America, creating an impression of unclaimed terrain and eliding the native inhabitants. The exhibition examines how the modern landscape might reflect a different America; its name comes from a Langston Hughes poem, in which the poet espoused a more inclusive American experience. The DMA is at 1717 N. Harwood St. in the Dallas Arts District. Information: www.dma.org.

Fierce Loyalty: A Samurai Complete is at Crow Museum of Asian Art. This permanent exhibition devoted to the art and culture of the Japanese samurai showcases one of the Crow Museum's most recent and spectacular acquisitions - a complete set of samurai armor, one of the finest examples of its kind anywhere in the world. The suit of armor was originally created for Abe Masayoshi (1700–1769), the daimyo (a powerful landholding ruler) of Bingo province from 1715 until his death.
