There’s no better way to kick off the new year for art aficionados, who are already paying a visit to Jacob Hashimoto's "Clouds and Chaos" newly-opened exhibition at the Crow Collection of Asian Art. Hashimoto, a Brooklyn-based artist, who uses paper, wood, and string to create whimsical displays of art, focuses his Dallas exhibition on how clouds can function as divisions of space within spaces. The various pieces of art were gathered over the past three years in collaboration with Durham Press in Pennsylvania, and mark the exhibit’s first showing in an American museum.
