AN ART IMMERSION LEARNING EXPERIENCE AT THE FAIRMONT DALLAS
March 26, 2010
Dallas – March 26, 2010 – The Dallas Arts District is a dynamic force of art and culture located in a bustling downtown metropolis. Towering buildings and skyscrapers are the canvas for brilliant architecture, unparalleled public art and iconic cultural institutions. Set amidst it all is The Fairmont Dallas, offering luxury accommodations in a historic building featuring its own collection of modern art. Art aficionados and novices alike will find something to takeaway from the immersed learning experience, The Art of Buying Art. As the only hotel in the Dallas Arts District and home to Ross Akard Gallery, the first gallery in the Arts District in three decades, the hotel is the ideal location for an aesthetic expedition.
The package includes one night of luxury accommodations, a one-hour session with Ross Akard Gallery owner, Bryan Embry, who will individually address the artistic styles of each guest and how to use that style to support local artists and create a gallery at home. A guided walking tour through the Dallas Arts District will showcase the vast and flourishing public art in the area and an art-themed dinner, an exclusive collaboration between Embry and the Pyramid culinary team, at the Four-Diamond AAA rated Pyramid Restaurant & Bar, will cap off the evening and allow all of the day’s colors to create a lasting memory. The Nasher Sculpture Center Handbook, a beautiful coffee table book detailing the visual documentation of the development of the center and its magnificent collection is included as a keepsake of the trip.
This package is available March 29 through December 30, 2010 and must be booked at least seven days in advance to guarantee the local art session with Embry and the guided walking tour. Rates start at $389. For reservations or more information, please visit www.fairmont.com/dallas or call (214) 720-2020.
