At one point not too long ago Dallas’ NorthPark was little more than a hugely successful, elitist enclave. Those residing in a Park Cities zip code regarded it as their private oasis, while those of us in outlying zip ‘burbs confined ourselves to Dillard’s and Penney’s, and then got-the-h*ll outta there. More recently it’s evolved into something considerably more democratic (small ‘d’). While remaining beautifully detailed and very well-scrubbed, the overall look is more indicative of a growing Dallas than a static – albeit still stupidly expensive – University Park.
With that, NorthPark has always spoken to art, as its founder, Ray Nasher, was a big proponent of not only art but the very public display of same. Some of his collection can be seen in the public spaces of the shopping center, while more is on view at the Nasher Sculpture Center in downtown Dallas. In the not-too-distant future NorthPark’s embrace of art will be further expanded with its first ever ‘Wrapped in Art’ competition, sponsored by Dallas’ Car Wrap City. This is an excellent opp to get those creative juices flowing and – if you win – put off that real job search for another month. Details – as you’d hope – follow…
