Through Nov. 3 Downtown Dallas, Inc. is excited to bring an interactive art piece called Passage to Main Street Garden Park, 1902 Main Street. Passage is an immersive, minimalist, contemplative, and interactive artwork that explores the emotional connections we develop with light and sound. The concept of the artwork takes root in the definition of the word passage itself: the act of moving through or past something on the way from one place to another, and also the process of transition from one state to another in a temporal dimension. The installation consists of 20 circles of light that form a tunnel which bystanders will go through and a sound system. The passage through the tunnel activates light animations and sounds. Each configuration has its own ambiance. This installation is free and open to the public. RSVP for free: www.facebook.com/DtownDallasInc.

Through May 15 Naudline Pierre: What Could Be Has Not Yet Appeared. The DMA presents the first solo museum exhibition of works by Naudline Pierre, whose vividly hued paintings portray opaque, otherworldly narratives through depictions of supernatural beings entangled in complex scenes of struggle and intimacy. Rearticulating historical tenets of religious painting, Pierre expresses the spiritual experience of transcendence through the means of an alter-ego figure who recurs throughout her works. This exhibition, which will feature the debut of five newly created paintings and the DMA's recent acquisition Lest You Fall, will consider the possibilities of speculation and fantasy in offering love, care, and routes for escape. The DMA is at 1717 N. Harwood St. in the Dallas Arts District. Information: www.dma.org.
