The Nasher Sculpture Center is dedicated to exploring modern and

preservation through innovative and stimulating programs.
Established as the new public home to one of the finest collections
of modern and contemporary sculpture in the world, the Nasher
Sculpture Center features The Raymond and Patsy Nasher Collection,
which includes masterpieces by Calder, De Kooning, Di Suvero,
Giacometti, Hepworth, Kelly, Matisse, Miro, Moore, Picasso, Rodin,
Serra, and Turrell, among others, and continues to grow and evolve.

and additional museum activities and services.  In addition, the
Center contains an auditorium, education, conservation, and research
facilities, a cafe, and a store.
