The Dallas Architecture Forum will open its 2017-2018 Lecture Series exploring the explosive growth of North Texas’ cultural arts sector.
In the last two decades, arts structures have been added such as the Winspear Opera House in Dallas and the Modern Art Museum’s new home in Fort Worth. Arts groups have been created or expanded their reach.
In June, Americans for the Arts released a study that placed North Texas as the third-largest arts economy in the nation. The study found the Dallas Arts District alone tripled its economic impact in five years.
The Oct. 10 lecture, “Cultural Developments in Dallas,” will pair cultural mavens Rick Brettell and Mark Lamster in a discussion looking back at the growth and how the region can continue to heighten arts opportunities for its residents in the next 20 years. Brettell is the vice provost of the University of Texas at Dallas and Mark Lamster serves as architecture critic for the The Dallas Morning News and a professor in the College of Architecture Planning and Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Arlington.
The lecture will begin at 7 p.m. in the Horchow Auditorium at the Dallas Museum of Art, with a complimentary reception at 6:15 p.m. The lecture is free for Dallas Architecture Forum members, $20 for general admission, and $5 for students with an ID.
