Olivia Smith shares her December and January travel plans.

“By early December, I’ll be in Miami for Art Basel with the rest of the art world. Between art fairs and the beach, I’ll plan to swing by the Pérez Art Museum to see Matthew Ronay’s show in the project space (through Jan. 15, 2017). Come nightfall, you’ll find me ice-skating in the Basement at The Miami Beach Edition or dancing at FDR, the nightclub in the Delano. Later in the month I’m traveling to my hometown of Dallas, Texas, where the local food and art scenes have exploded in the last few years. At the Dallas Museum of Art, the artists Lucie Stahl and Nicolas Party have solo exhibitions that I want to check out (respectively through March 12 and Feb. 5, 2017). I’m also excited to see Kathryn Andrews’s satirical Bozo the Clown sculptures in her show at the Nasher Sculpture Center (through Jan. 8, 2017). I always plan a trip 50 miles south to 100 West Corsicana, an artist residency set in an 1898 Odd Fellows Lodge. I’ll ring in the New Year at Midnight Rambler in The Joule Hotel with a few friends, and maybe end up at Bar Belmont, the best place for a fantastic view of the city’s skyline. Any trip to Dallas would not be complete without a meal at Kalachandji’s, a vegetarian oasis inside a Hare Krishna temple, and a cup of coffee at my favorite spot, Novel Coffee Roasters. “If I want to escape to the cinema I’ll visit The Texas Theatre in Oak Cliff, which, aside from being the location where Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, lets me bring my own vinyl to listen to at the bar.”
