Art Deco in North Texas

Date:August 6, 2015
Time: 6:00 PM
Location: Hall of State
Fair Park

Authors Jim Parsons and David Bush will discuss their work in north Texas on documenting Art Deco architecture and their book Fair Park Deco which focuses specifically on the Art Deco art and architecture of Fair Park — the public spaces, buildings, sculptures and murals that were designed for the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition.  

Fair Park is one of the finest collections of Art Deco architecture in the country, but it is so much more: the embodiment of Texan swagger, a testament to the Texanic task of creating a dazzling spectacle in the darkest days of the Depression.

Jim and David will also discuss their current project underway, a book which will feature the amazing collection of Art Deco architecture across north Texas.

Fair Park Deco will be available for purchase at the program with the authors signing copies after the presentation.

The program is a presentation of the Dallas Architecture Forum, the Dallas Center for Architecture, the Dallas Historical Society and Preservation Dallas.

Cost:Free and open to the public.
