The Architecture of the Arts District

With the completion of the AT&T Performing Arts Center, the largest urban arts district in the United States now has its crowning jewel.  But the foundation for the District began over 25 years ago with the relocation of the Dallas Museum of Art from Fair Park to its newly constructed Edward Larrabee Barnes-designed building downtown.  Today, the Arts District is a veritable living museum of architecture—featuring not only the work of four Pritzker Prize-winning architects: Norman Foster, Rem Koolhaas, I.M. Pei and Renzo Piano—but also other buildings important in the civic history of the city.  This exhibition—including models, original documents and other artifacts— will examine the District’s evolution and place its buildings into a larger context within the extraordinary architectural richness of the region.

The exhibition is sponsored by McLaughlin Brunson Insurance Company LLP. 

The exhibition will be accompanied by walking tours of the Arts District as well as other special events and programs.

The Dallas Center for Architecture is open 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. weekdays.  We will be closed December 24 & 25 and January 1.


Cost: Free and open to the public.
