The Dallas Museum of Arts is currently running six exhibitions from various parts of the world.

Yayoi Kusama’s “All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins” is the first mirror pumpkin room created by the artist since 1991. This is the only mirror infinity room of its kind in North America. This instillation will be up until April 29.

If the Parisian lifestyle is more up your alley, then “Paris at the Turn of the Century” is the exhibition for you. This installation depicts Parisian everyday life by painters, printmakers and photographers in the second half of the 19th century. These works celebrate Paris’ beauty as well as the shadier aspects of the city. Admission is free and the exhibition will be up until April 15.

“Hopi Visions: Journey of the Human Spirit” by Michael Kabotie and Delbrideg Honanie is on display through December 2. It depicts the story of the Hopi from the mythic emergence, through colonialism, to the resurgence of Hopi traditions.

Edward Steichen: In Exaltation of Flowers will be on display for the first time in over 100 years. These seven paintings, created from 1911-1914, were painted for financier Eugene Meyer and his wife, Agnes. The exhibition will be going on through May 13 and admission is free.

“Asian Textiles: Art and Trade Along the Silk Road” showcases garments and ornamental hangings from India, Central Asia, China, and Japan. This exhibition is a look into the historical trade route that led to an abundance of trade and ideas from the Mediterranean to India and the Far East. Admission is free and the installation will be up to Dec. 9.

The Keir Collection of Islamic Art will be on display to April 26, 2020. This loaned collection of private art is transforming the DMA into the third largest collection of Islamic Art in the United States. This exhibition will showcase rare manuscripts, pottery, and rock crystals, “including the celebrated rock crystal ewer, one of the only seven in the world of its caliber and the only one of its type in the United States,” according to the DMA’s website.

The DMA’s six exhibitions showcase cultures from all over the world. For more information, visit the museum website.
