The last two decades have seen dramatic developments in the cultural fabric of North Texas. In Dallas, the Arts District saw the addition of the Nasher Sculpture Center, the Wyly Theater, the Winspear Opera House, the Moody (formerly City) Performance Hall, and the completion of the Booker T. Washington campus. Fort Worth has added the Modern Art Museum and the Piano Pavilion at the Kimbell among its new signature buildings.

Much has happened besides the completion of these signature buildings. Galleries, artist labs, and new musical and theatrical organizations have also come into existence or increased their reach across North Texas. Academic centers such as UT-Dallas and nonprofits and museums such as The Dallas Architecture Forum  and the Dallas Museum of Art have expanded their cultural reach and raised awareness and dialogue on issues important to all of us. In addition to the Arts District in Dallas and the Cultural District in Fort Worth, there are emerging centers of creative activity across many North Texas cities. Join us for a lively discussion with Dr. Rick Brettell and Mark Lamster as we examine some of these major accomplishments over the last 20 years. Brettell and Lamster will also discuss what needs to occur over the next two decades to enhance the arts and cultural opportunities for all North Texas residents. 

Informal reception, check-in, and ticket sales begin at 6:15 p.m. in the Atrium.
