Take a tour of the Winspear and Wyly for free
Beginning September 7 and continuing every first Saturday, docents will offer tours of the two buildings.
The Winspear and Wyly are two of the newer buildings in the Dallas Arts District. The tour will include sights the public rarely gets to see, like a look at "the signature wall" backstage at the Winspear, which is a wall signed by performers such as Alec Baldwin, Jerry Seinfeld and Kristin Chenoweth, according to Chris Heinbaugh, vice president of external affairs.
The tours coincide with Target First Saturdays, a regular event hosted at the Nasher Sculpture Center. Also on the first Saturday of the month, the Trammell & Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art offers art-related activities for families.
The new walking tours of the Wyly and Winspear take 45 minutes and begin in the Winspear lobby. The first tours are September 7 between 10 a.m. and noon, every half hour.
Tours are free and reservations are not required. According to the release, participants should be at least 8 years old.
