Peter Frank of LA Weekly asserts: “Not since the Museum of non-Objective Art in New York morphed into the Guggenheim Museum more than half a century ago has there been anything like this in North America.”

Quite a statement! Frank is referring to the MADI Museum in Uptown Dallas — the first gallery devoted solely to MADI art.

What is MADI art, you may ask? Good question. No one really knows the origin of its name, but, in short, MADI is an avant-garde movement founded by Carmelo Arden Quin in the 1940’s in Argentina. The art form resembles Cubism: lots of bright colors and geometric design. (Just take a look at the museum exterior and you’ll get the picture!)

And, who would have thought that the MADI building also houses a law practice? Indeed, it does. Attorney Bill Masterson, the museum’s founder and MADI enthusiast (clearly!), is also president of Kilgore & Kilgore law firm.

All of you modernists: be sure to check this one out!

New submission:

ART is ART is a unique, mother-daughter-owned shop that focuses on spring-boarding talented, local artists by showcasing their original, modern/abstract paintings. Prices asked for these inspiring, consigned pieces are surprisingly comfortable. While absorbing, you’ll also discover contemporary and vintage furniture and complements, as well as individualistic, hand-crafted jewelry, pottery and earth-friendly soy candles. You can browse and enjoy a complimentary cup of exotic tea in a relaxed, groovy atmosphere.

I take it that this site is no longer active? Art galleries are way out of date…
