I’m sorry to be MIA for the last couple of weeks! My bestie from Oklahoma came to visit me and I held the responsibility to entertain her all week long. It turned out to be an adventure for myself as well since we went to places I’ve never been to before. She’s majoring in interior design, so I knew I wanted to take her to places related to design and art. Here is a recap of the artsy/design-y part of our adventure.
Fort Worth Water Garden, designed by architect Philip Johnson and John Burgee. Ever since recommended by a friend, I fell in love with this place. This picture doesn’t do justice to how cool the experience is stepping down to the bottom of the water garden. Absolutely one of my most favorite spot in DFW.
Bass Performance Hall, located at Downtown Fort Worth. When I first saw it, I couldn’t believe that this beauty actually exists in Texas! It has the classic European opera house feeling to it.
Fort Worth Stockyard. The true Cowboy Town. I didn’t even know that there is a Cowboy Santa :)
Sky Lobby, located in JP Morgan Chase Tower. Stunning lobby with view overlooking Dallas.
Dallas Museum of Art. Can’t believe this is the first time I’ve been to this museum. Apparently, they have FREE admission every Thursday evening (although this will end starting next year), along with live jazz band playing at their Atrium Cafe for Thursday Night Live. The museum was quite okay. I love the Charles Rohlfs furniture exhibition a lot.
Design Within Reach. Most things here are not exactly within my pocket’s reach, but definitely an amazing store to go to.
