The Eye at the Joule will play its part in bringing the Dallas Art Fair into clearer focus.
Starting Friday and continuing through Sunday, the 30-foot-tall optic sculpture made of fiberglass, resin and steel will be the site of the Eyeboretum, a celebration of the Dallas Art Fair.
The Eyeboretum benefits the Dallas Art Fair Foundation’s education programs. Tickets are $10 for adults and free for children 12 and under. Tickets, which are available on a first-come, first-served basis, are available online only. Day-of-admission tickets can also be used at The Joule for dining offers.
Catch up on the day’s news you need to know.
In its first year, the Eyeboretum replaces the private Eye Ball, the formal closing celebration for the art fair.
The Dallas Art Fair, founded in 2009 and regarded as the centerpiece of the Dallas visual arts scene, opened to the public Friday at the Fashion Industry Gallery.
In a press release, the Dallas-based Headington Cos. and the Joule said the Eyeboretum “invites guests to see things from a new perspective by exploring surreal, vibrant landscapes throughout The Eye’s expansive lawn.”
The space includes reflective gardens, a pink cafe and vegetable patches. Besides the bloodshot blue eye, the lawn has been the destination for weddings, yoga classes and picnics.
“We wanted to expand the expression of the space even further to create something that can be appreciated by the entire city,” said Jeny Bania, Headington Companies CMO, who is spearheading the event’s concept and design along with long-term creative partners, Planet Productions.
John Sughrue, Dallas Art Fair co-founder and chairman, said he appreciates the art fair’s relationship with Headington Cos.
“From intimate events to large public gatherings, their programming creates an even more dynamic fair experience for all kinds of audiences,” he said in a statement.
The Eye, created by artist Tony Tasset, came to Dallas in 2013. The piece was commissioned as part of the Chicago Loop Alliance’s Art Loop program and made its debut in Chicago’s Pritzker Park in 2010 before arriving in Dallas three years later.
