Cool Confucian Water fall

In the middle of the two wing of the Crow Asian Museum is a couple of granite waterfalls, cooling the area off.

Great place to go to if you want to look at some Asian art and to get out of the heat. The Arts District has a unique feel about it and it's great for couples

the new arts district is developing a real flair and certainly worth a visit. Great buildings and little cafes give the area a relaxed feeling, and the art works are wonderful. Easy to walk around and lots to see and do

This is an amazing collection of modern (1980s - 2010s) buildings dedicated to performing arts and museums. It also contains a performing arts high school. The museums are very good and two of them are free. Warren park (built over a freeway) is adjacent to the district and is also worth a visit.

Prior to visiting the central arts district if you had told me about Dallas and culture in the same sentence I would have laughed. But the street Art was truly mind blowing. If you have a day and take the Art Walk you can truly see all the wonderful sights and have great photo opportunities.

This area is wonderful. I hope to move closer. I love the theater, museums and culture. I love the public art. It is all walkable and accessible by public transportation. It is clean and beautiful. Can you tell I'm a huge fan?

Maybe unsurpassed by any city's museum collection, this area with the Dallas Museum of Art, the Crow Collection of Asian Art, and the Nasher Sculpture Collection in a lovely setting with trees, benches, cafes, and peaceful space. Wonderful collections in all of them.
