Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
I am honored and thrilled to serve as the Whitewaller Dallas guest editor. Dallas is a dynamic and energetic city with the friendliest and most inclusive community around.
There are so many reasons to love Dallas. Culturally, we have one of the strongest Arts Districts in the country. For the visual arts, go to the encyclopedic Dallas Museum of Art and the Nasher Sculpture Center, or, if you fancy music and theater, we have the AT&T Performing Arts Center and the Meyerson Symphony Center.
Spring happens to be the best time to be in Dallas, not only for our beautiful weather but for all the fun happenings going on around the city. The Dallas Contemporary’s early April gala chaired by Kristen Cole will be followed by the Nasher Prize honoring Isa Genzken. Of course, I wouldn’t miss the Dallas Art Fair. Since its debut 10 years ago, it has continued to grow in size with galleries coming in from all over the world.
If you’re in town for the fair and looking for culinary entertainment, you’re in the right place. A few of my favorites are José, for the best margarita
and guacamole anywhere; Bullion, for the sexiest French bar; and Cafe Aloha at Forty Five Ten downtown, for a lovely post-shopping refuel. For a marvelous dining-shopping combo, head straight to the iconic Highland Park Village, where you’ll find all the international designers, then head up to Park House Private Social Club (if you’re not a member, befriend one quick!) for dinner and late-night dancing with music from some of the city’s hottest DJs.
To see our awe-inspiring galleries, go to the Design District and catch a thoughtful exhibition at galerie frank elbaz, James Cope’s AND NOW Gallery, or the local talent at Barry Whistler. While you’re here, don’t miss our world-class private art spaces like The Warehouse, The Power
Station, The Karpidas Collection, and The Goss-Michael Foundation. As I said, we’re friendly and inclusive, so enjoy!
