Learning about art or history doesn’t stop once you leave a museum. Dallas/Fort Worth museums are using social media to interact with the public, and the Twitter feeds, Flickr pages, blogs, YouTube sites and Facebook pages are helping us expand our knowledge of the arts and humanities, one click at a time. So follow them, friend them or bookmark them, but check out these pages to be in the know about events, exhibits and DFW culture.
