Dallas Arts District
The largest contiguous urban arts district in the nation, the Dallas Arts District includes the AT&T Performing Arts Center, Dallas Museum of Art, Crow Collection of Asian Art, Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, Dallas City Performance Hall, Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas Black Dance Theatre, and Belo Mansion. Here, you’ll also find Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts and One Arts Plaza, as well as a myriad of historic churches, delicious restaurants, and eclectic food trucks. And, of course, you can’t forget Klyde Warren Park, a 5.2-acre deck park built over a stretch of Woodall Rodgers Freeway.
What is your favorite Arts District space?
“Hands down it’s the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre [at the AT&T Performing Arts Center]. The space is one of the world’s more innovative theater facilities. When we first started to hear and see the plans for the venue, many of us at Dallas Theater Center couldn’t wrap our heads around the 10-level building that takes the word “flexible” to a whole new level. If you haven’t checked out the Wyly yet, then it better be first on your to-do list.”
