Encouraging Dialogue

For Students K-12

  • What do you see in this painting? Do any of these things tell you which Texas city inspired this artist?
  • Do you think this looks like a place out of a fairy tale? Why or why not? Think back to the first time you saw downtown Dallas. Did it look like this?
  • What would you put in a picture about Dallas? Would you use bright colors like these? What are some landmarks you might include in the picture? Notice how Grosz includes words in his painting. What words might you include in a picture about Dallas?
