Can’t fit in a road trip during the Week? Experience the Coastlines Without Leaving Dallas!
Coastlines on Film
Thursday evenings, July 15–August 12
General admission is FREE from 5–9 p.m.
Summer means the biggest Blockbuster hits are finally released! Why not change it up a little and plan a Summer Film night at the DMA.
From Southern California to the French Riviera, from Cape Cod to Copacabana, join the DMA and the Dallas Film Society for summer screenings of films set on the beach or at sea. Before each film, critics, filmmakers, curators, and special guests will discuss how coastal landscapes inspire filmmakers and visual artists alike.

The Perfect Way to Enjoy The DMA: Museum’s smARTphone
The Dallas Museum of Art, in collaboration with The University of Texas at Dallas’ Arts and Technology (ATEC) program, has created its first exhibition that is entirely accompanied by a multilayer sound installation. On view now through August 22, Coastlines: Images of Land and Sea investigates through 66 works of art in the Museum’s collections—paintings, watercolors, drawings, prints, and photographs—how visual artists of the modern period (1850–present) have represented coastal landscapes. Created by graduate students and faculty in the Arts and Technology program at The University of Texas at Dallas, along with sound design students from the Université du Sud Toulon-Var in Toulon, France, the Coastlines sound design project will be a unique response to the works of art on view and their groupings within the exhibition and has been conceived to support the immersive qualities—intellectual, psychological, and sensorial—of the exhibition itself.
This soundscape includes three synchronized layers. A global soundscape audible throughout the exhibition contains musical elements shaped by the natural sounds and rhythms of waves. Regional soundscapes respond to the thematic sections of the exhibition and serve as varied counterpoints to the global layer. Finally, local soundscapes represent sonic interpretations of twelve selected works of art, varying according to the visual content and context of the work, as well as the composer’s interpretation.

These local soundscapes will be projected from hyperdirectional speakers that allow them to be heard only from discrete locations, directly before the works of art to which they respond.
These sites are designated in the galleries by circles of carpet on the floor. Visitors can learn more about the process of developing this unique sound installation—including the international dialogue between students in Dallas and Toulon, France—via a web-based exchange, on computer terminals located within the exhibition. They can also discover other sonic interpretations by UT Dallas’ ATEC students of works of art at the DMA via the Museum’s smARTphone tour of the collections or at DallasMuseumofArt.mobi.
