The Face of Big Tex

Posted by    |    May 23rd, 2013 at 4:33 pm

Ever since that sad day in Texas history when Big Tex caught fire and burned down right before our eyes our spirits have been kept lifted by the fact that Big Tex will return. Throughout Big Tex’s reconstruction State Fair officials have been keeping us updated on his progress with short clips that show the computer design process of his various body parts. So far we’ve seen his hand, his head and now in the most recent installment we see his face.

It seems like they’re sticking pretty close Tex’s original face especially the creepy factor. But hey it wouldn’t be the Big Tex we know and love if he wasn’t just a little creepy looking, it’s all part of his charm and we love him for it.

There will be plenty of Mother’s Day brunches in Dallas to choose from, but wouldn’t it be right up your mother’s alley to spend the atrium-caferest of the day strolling around the Dallas Museum of Art? Soak up some culture catching some of the DMA’s newest exhibits as well as the works of Marc Chagall during the final month of the Beyond Color exhibit. You may even burn off some of brunch calories; walking is great exercise, no matter how slow.

Celebrate Mother’s Day at the DMA with a special Mother’s Day Brunch in the Museum’s Atrium. Sunday’s brunch features a carving station, made to order omelets, crepes made to order, and an interactive Bloody Mary and Mimosa Bar.
