The new Information Center in the Dallas Arts District opened Monday, May 13. Located in Elaine D. and Charles A. Sammons Park, the Information Center includes a Pearl Cup café, box office and a visual presentation space created by AT&T. The new structure provides visitors information about events and institutions in the entire Dallas Arts District, including Klyde Warren Park and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. It also offers information about Dallas Summer Musicals, productions at Kalita Humphreys Theater, Latino Cultural Center and other nonprofit cultural venues.
The sleek, glass-enclosed Information Center was designed by Foster + Partners of London, which also designed the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House and Annette Strauss Square. Lord Foster is a Pritzker Prize-winning architect.
Customers can enjoy their drinks and snacks at café tables and chairs in Sammons Park. The Center also provides free AT&T Wi-Fi, Ping-Pong and foosball tables. This setting is ideal for outdoor events, including the free Thursday afternoon Patio Sessions concerts in the spring and fall.
The Information Center box office is open 10:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. daily. On performance nights in the Winspear Opera House, Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Strauss Square or the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, the box office stays open late.
