Michael May's the latest to wonder
whether the AT&T Performing Arts Center is going to remake downtown. Brent Brown
, of bcWORKSHOP and the Dallas City Design Studio at City Hall, says, Yup, sure 'nuff
, so long as you include, oh, Main Street Garden
in the mix: "It's still dead on weekends, but that's changing. There's a lot more green space downtown now, and it's giving people a reason to hang around." May, whose story is accompanied by a very NPR audio piece, also manages to work in Gene Jones's work decorating Cowboys Stadium
with all that fancy-schmancy artwork. May encounters one Cowboys fan who was indeed mighty impressed with Olafur Eliasson's Moving Stars Take Time
: "It just made me feel like I was floating, like I was high. I'd already had one margarita, so it just took me to another level."
