A Look Ahead At The Week’s Art&Seek Picks 18

It’s a busy week for the arts in North Texas. There are exhibitions, music and theater galore. One exhibition will appeal to lovers of the Stock Show, and another to those who can’t get enough of the sky and open space. There’s even a show that explores children’s books in a big way. If classical music is your thing, there are opportunities to listen in intimate settings and in great halls. And in theater and dance, you can sample both the traditional and experimental.

Check out our suggestions for things to do throughout the week.
