The Dallas Arts District, located in Downtown Dallas, is one of the largest of its kind in the United States.  Covering 68 acres, the Dallas Arts District is home to some of Dallas’ most significant cultural landmarks including buildings designed by four Pritzker Prize-winning architects.  Our creative team was challenged to visually present in five minutes thirty years of effort by some of Dallas' leading citizens to construct one of the finest arts districts in the United States. 

This piece of visual art opens with a glimpse of the artistic strength of the Dallas Black Dance Theatre, featuring dancer Jamie Thompson.  The Dallas Black Dance Theatre is the oldest, continuously operating professional dance company in Dallas. 

The Crow Collection of Asian Art is a permanent set of galleries dedicated to the arts and cultures of China, Japan, India and Southeast Asia.

The Dallas Museum of Art, or DMA, offers world class exhbitions and eductional opportunities.  Every Thursday evening there are live jazz concerts, dinner and drinks in the cafe, and artist encounters in the Center for Creative Connections.  Once a month the DMA is open until midnight with performances, concerts, readings, film screenings, tours and family programs. 

The Dallas Opera performs at The Winspear Opera House at the AT&T Performing Arts Center.   We had the pleasure of capturing the essence of the Dallas Opera under the direction of Music Director Graeme Jenkins recently in this masterful visual presentation.

The Meyerson Symphony Center, designed by I.M. Pei, is a magnet for the finest artistic talent, such as the Dallas Symphony Orchestra Musical Director Jaap van Zweden.

The Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre is one of the world's most innovative theatre facilities. The 12-level building features a groundbreaking design with an unprecedented "stacked," vertically organized facility that completely rethinks the traditional form of theatre. The Wyly Theatre was designed by frequent TEDxSMU speaker, Joshua Prince-Ramus, and Pritzker Prize winner Rem Koolhaas.

The Nasher Sculpture Center is one of the few institutions in the world devoted to the exhibition, study, and preservation of modern sculpture.  The Sculpture Center, designed by Pritzker Prize winner Renzo Piano, is the home of the world renowned Raymond and Patsy Nasher Collection of modern and contemporary sculpture.
