Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Next week is the Dallas Art Fair, where the 2017 edition of Whitewaller Dallas will debut. We’ll be there to guide you through the must-see and be-seen-at spots around town as well as the top exhibitions, restaurants, shops, and more to check out. This week and next we’ll share the “Insider Tips” from those in-the-know on what to see, do, and consume in Dallas during the fair. Next up is co-founder of the Dallas Art Fair, Chris Byrne.
WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
When I have guests visit from Europe, they love to go to Bob’s Steak & Chop House located inside the Omni Hotel in Downtown Dallas. I also enjoy Americano and CBD Provisions for drinks with friends.
WHERE TO SEE ART
Dallas has world-renowned visual art institutions, and I recommend visiting the Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center, and Dallas Contemporary. In conjunction with additional spaces like The Goss-Michael Foundation, The Power Station, and The Warehouse, it’s possible to experience a comprehensive overview of postwar art here.
The Dallas Arts District includes architecture by Edward Larrabee Barnes, Norman Foster, Rem Koolhaas, I. M. Pei, Renzo Piano, and Thom Mayne.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
This past year, NorthPark Center celebrated its 50th anniversary. The collection on view features works by Jonathan Borofsky, Sarah Braman, Beverly Pepper, and Frank Stella, among others.
