Dallas Arts District, the largest American neighbourhood for the arts

Far from a cultural desert, the Dallas artistic centre has many surprises in store for you, including a 27-hectare district where you can travel through the art world.

This Texas city is bursting with energy. Sponsored by Fort Worth's major livestock breeders, oil magnates, captains of industry and cotton moguls, Dallas' ambition is to become a major artistic capital in the United States, alongside New York, Miami and Los Angeles. The Dallas Arts District, located north of the city centre, includes five renowned art museums and performance halls such as the Dallas Theater Center. This architectural complex houses several buildings designed by leading architects: Renzo Piano, I. M. Pei, Rem Koolhaas and Joshua Prince-Ramus. The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) offers more than 24,000 works of art from the Third millennium BC to the present day, and the Kimbell Art Museum's exquisite collection of European, Asian and pre-Columbian works are impressively exhibited with unique lighting techniques. The Amon Carter Museum with an impressive collection of artists from the 1950s also has a library of more than 150,000 items. Finally, the amazing Nasher Sculpture Center, exhibits modern masterpieces that express love and knowledge of the art at its finest.
