The Art, Architecture and Ambition of Dallas

Thursday, March 23–Sunday, March 26

$2500 pp/double occupancy        $2900 pp/single occupancy

For our Texas tour this spring, we go north to explore the visionary urban planning and public art in Dallas. This all-star trip will feature visits to some of the city’s most significant public spaces, private homes, and collections. We will travel by motorcoach from Houston to Dallas, round-trip.

From our downtown Dallas lodgings at the chic Hotel Indigo, we will tour the extraordinary art installations at AT&T Stadium, home to the Dallas Cowboys, and visit the storied Temple Emanu-El, an icon of modernist architecture. We will visit Klyde Warren Park and learn how an ambitious plan to build a park over a freeway knitted together the urban fabric of central Dallas. We will tour historic Fair Park, home to the Texas State Fair, to see how this Art Deco gem has been lovingly restored in recent years. We will also tour the spectacular architecture of the arts district on Flora Street downtown, as well as the Trinity River Audubon Center, situated on a 120-acre haven for wildlife that was reclaimed from a former illegal dump site. 

Of course, no trip to Dallas would be complete without visiting several architecturally significant private homes, where our hosts will share their fine art collections and beautiful grounds. During our trip, the renowned architectural historian Stephen Fox will join local experts on our tour of this dynamic city. On our way home, we will stop in historic Corsicana, where we will see a remarkable artist residency located in a former Oddfellows Lodge building from the 1890s.
