Dallas on the Future of the Downtown Tunnels System

Posted by    |    August 24th, 2011 at 3:31 pm

Earlier this year we released our video on the Downtown Dallas Tunnels System, featuring Jack Gosnell’s narration regarding the past and present of the city’s underground heat-escape. Dallasites spend their work hours indoors and opt for the tunnels system as a means to go out for lunch, keeping their sweat glands in tact, leaving restaurant owners above ground to suffer from the lack of warm bodies roaming the streets. This week, Robert Wilonsky and the Dallas Morning News reported on the city’s future plans for the tunnels system and whether or not they will survive once the Downtown Dallas 360 plan is implemented. A decision has not yet been reached and could be a couple years away. For more information regarding the Downtown Tunnels, view the above video.

Crow Collection After Dark

The deeply religious in nature, sacred art form, also known as Tibetan art, dates back to the 11th century. But that doesn’t mean that this century doesn’t get to experience its compiled masterpieces influenced by different cultures across the globe.

The Crow Collection After Dark, Friday August 19, in The Arts Plaza of Downtown Dallas is hosting an evening exhibit of the Mystical Arts of Tibet. It will be a sight to see but will also have activities to partake in, such as making your own sand paintings, prayer flags, and Tibetan friendship scarves.
