On Thursday March 23, 2017, The Jesuit Dallas Museum hosted its very first Disney-themed art exhibition, located in the traditional library. The exhibition includes art from classic Disney films such as Pinocchio, Peter Pan, and Snow White, all loaned from collector Barbara Hartger. The exhibition's opening night was a major success, catering to both adults who grew up watching the films as...
On. Off. On. Off. The flickering lights of the theater rapidly switch on and off, repeatedly shedding light on the intricate American Flag-painted stage before replacing it with darkness. Familiar to many, the flashing lights alert the audience to silence their phones, to sit quietly, and enjoy the next hour and a half of the Jesuit Theater’s spring performance. On...
