DMA shows a different side of Jackson Pollock

The Kimbell isn’t the only local museum with stunning new exhibits. Over at the Dallas Museum of Art, guests can admire later works from Jackson Pollock. Best known for his “drip” or “splatter” painting, Pollock experimented with other forms as well, including sculpture, above, and a technique with paint on absorbant cotton that adds a new layer to what we know of the art of this icon of American abstraction.
