The Dallas Arts District
The Dallas Arts District is a small area on the northeast corner of Downtown Dallas. Though it was first envisioned in the late 1970s, most of the buildings have been erected in the last decade or so, as a concerted effort to bring culture and art to the city. Recently, after going to Klyde Warren Park for a food truck lunch with my friends, I walked through the Dallas Arts District and snapped these photos of the monumental buildings contained within. The Arts District has some awesome examples of contemporary architecture, and despite the empty streets you see at three in the afternoon, it can get quite popular and crowded on a Saturday night. If you’re ever looking for something to in Dallas, other than eating or shopping, I highly recommend the Arts District.
