For her first solo exhibition at the Crow Museum, Dallas-based artist Kana Harada has created several new works during this time of global pandemic that blend messages of hope and positivity with visual innovations that create an imaginative universe of awe, wonder and intimacy. Divine Spark will be on view Jan. 30-Sept. 5, 2021, at the Crow Museum, located in the Dallas Arts District at 2010 Flora St., Dallas 75201.
