AT&T Performing Arts Center Grand Opening
January 05, 2010
With Starbucks in hand, a few dibbers braved the cold early morning to attend the Dedication Ceremony for the AT&T Performing Arts Center. City officials, mega-wealthy donors, media types, staff and performers from all of the resident companies and the entire design & construction crew turned out to witness this historic day for the City of Dallas. It really was pretty amazing to sit in the middle of Sammons Park in the heart of downtown Dallas, surrounded on all sides by beautiful buildings; the Winspear Opera House, Wyly Theatre, Meyerson Symphony Center and Booker T. Washington Arts Magnet High School. Finally, there is truly a pedestrian friendly district in Dallas where you can live, work, play, eat and be entertained in a few square blocks. You have to see it in person to fully appreciate what a monumental step this is in the right direction for Dallas!
